Re: Can't install Ubuntu 11.04 from USB stick
I had the exact same problem two days ago. My USB stick had been freshly formatted and my downloaded ISO MD5 sum matched. But mine would run up into the "Install Software" phase, then fail. After several attempts, I formatted the stick again, re-downloaded the ISO, and tried again. That time, the install ran to successful completion.
I can only surmise that, in spite of everything checking out, something was wrong with the image after it was copied to the stick.
