It would help to know what type of system you tried to install on.

Also, were you able to follow the install instructions here?:

Very basically:

Write an install image from whatever version you want to an install
medium. That medium can be CD or USB, or virtual machine can boot
directly from the image.

Boot the machine from the image.

Follow the prompts from the installer to install the system.

What part of this are you stuck on?
