There seem to be other people on the internet who've been able to install Ubuntu onto that netbook. Have you checked in the BIOS to make sure it's set to boot from USB? I found one page that says booting from USB is very unreliable, you may want to give it a couple of tries.

booting from usb is not a problem for me, and i forgot to metion mine netbook is hp pavilion dm1 with amd e350 apu.
my problem is that it will hang just before loading the login scrren, i saw some crap dotted line on sceen but i can't alt+f1 to the terminal, so i think it is hanged.

Installation went smoothly for me. On an Acer Aspire 5253-BZ480 the only problem it has its that their is water mark that says "AMD unsupported hardware" after i installed the AMD driver.

Have you tested the iso image to make sure it is good?

I had the same experience. You have to install the newer 11-2-x86.x86_64 Catalyst driver.

I have dm1-300 with e350, I was able to install 10.10 via usb no problem. I too had graphics driver issue, but fixed it by getting the catalyst version from amd website for the e350 processor.

initially ubuntu did not detect the wireless card, found solution else where on forum. required download of the ralink drivers and adding a line to some data file.

Problem now.. unable to join hidden ssid networks. it actually joins, but i cant get out. unable to ping anything except lo. anyone else have same problem?

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP dm1 via a USB flash drive. I followed the instructions to create it from Ubuntu's website. I changed the boot order in BIOS (put USB key/drive at the top), but it would boot into Windows anyway. When I do an F9 to see the boot options I have, I only see Notebook Hard drive, and do not see an option for USB. Strange! Has any one come across this before?

@T0OL, how did you go about installing ubuntu on a dm1?

@T0OL, how did you go about installing ubuntu on a dm1?

created the usb live disk using a windows machine following online instructions.
1) put in laptop
2) power on
3) hit esc
4) chose f9
5) mine says note book harddrive and cbm flash disk, chose flash disk
6) follow install

with the exception to finding and installing proper e350 drivers and ralink 539f, everything was pretty simple. still am unable navigate the network.

I can connect to a hidden ssid
I can get an ip address
I cannot load a web-page
I cannot ping either

Not an amd e350 but I have a desktop with an AMD785 chipset that won't boot from a USB key. BIOS is set properly. A ThinkPad R61 & AMD desktop with a 740 chipset that boot fine from the same USB key. I wonder if there's something in newer AMD chipsets that causes problems booting from USB drives?

@T0OL Which instructions did you follow. I have tried following 3 different sets of instructions, and none of them seem to work. Can you please give me the link to those instructions?

Thanks

@ehpikay - I managed to get wireless networking operational on my e-machines e350 ( 32-bit version of Ubuntu 10.04).
The instructions are at http://wp.me/pweWl-fj and include creation of a live disk using the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator utility.

Hope you find them useful.

I bought an Acer 15.6 inch laptop with the e350. I could not get lucid installed but managed to install desktop edition of v.10.10. The alternate installation of v.10.10 would not install, giving an unsupported kernel error. I ran out of disk space after installation of the desktop version because of huge logging of multiple errors (90 GB accumulated during installation and updating.) I decided the kernel does not yet support the e350 and I returned the Acer laptop.

Obviously it's too late now, but you should have tried 11.04 (Unity issues notwithstanding) as it has a newer kernel - actually just about cutting edge right now - 2.6.38. kernel.org shows that 2.6.38.5 is the very newest stable.

This may have had a big influence - the AMD E350 is still very new.

i have 11.04 installed on and everything works great, it was updated from 10.10 by ubuntu update manager.

I am still unable to surf the network, when connected to a hidden ssid. otherthan that networking works great.

anybody have a fix?
