I've tried installing 11.10 from my Kingston Data Traveler (8GB), fat32, after following the instructions here http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download
after using a bootable USB created in Windows and then using one created in Ubuntu. I've given the removable drives the highest priority in the BIOS but it just skips to the hard drive. I am able to access the USB drive via the hard drive so it's functioning. I am trying to install 11.10 on a home Desktop with no internet connection. (I was unable to connect to wired internet after installing of Ubuntu 10.04.04 using an older 4GB Kingston USB pen drive after a new Intel DP67DE micro ATX motherboard installed. After trying all the instructions online from various sites, seems the D Link DGE-530T PCI adapter version C1 & onboard Intel 82579 may not be compatible with 10.04 and the only PCI express slot is being used for a video card.)
Why won't the USB work? Was the Ubuntu 11.10 iso corrupted?
