OK, so you said in your OP (Original Poster is you, also Original Post is your first post) that Windows on your Dad's old unit, a Dell Latitude E6400, was caught in a startup loop. So with what we know, I have a few questions, if you could answer them, I or someone else can run with the ball.
1. Did you download the furry little fellow - Ubuntu 16.04 'Xenial Xerus' - using the Dell, or some other computer?
2. If you take a look at Montana Ed's thread here https://www.linux.org/threads/need-help-installing-linux-from-iso-file.16436/
you will be following a similar course. Stan's (@atanere
's) post at #3 is very relevant, to verify the iso you downloaded, so you could start with the bit
... and download and use the checksum utility on Windows to verify your Ubuntu.
3. Did you opt for USB stick (pen drive &c) or DVD?
I'll be back soon and we can look at superuser status, and short answer to the following is "Yes"
... When the install is completed, Ubuntu will boot up every time.
