    no default or UI configuration directive found

    Last week, I made the mistake of trying to update Ubuntu without my netbook being plugged in, and it ran out of power half way through the update and now my computer wont boot.

    So now I'm trying to reinstall Ubuntu. I made the flash drive, formatted it to FAT32 or whatever, and set my BIOS to boot off of USB.

    But shortly after turning my computer on it gives me the error, "no default or UI configuration directive found."

    The flash drive is made by Kingston.

    My netbook is http://www.officedepot.com/a/product...NR-XP-Edition/

    Thanks in advance for any help

    EDIT: I found the answer in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...+configuration

    I just had to rename a folder on the flash drive.

    I worked around this by formatting to FAT16 and using a 1GB partition to create my bootable USB key.

    I used a 2GB FAT partition and it worked. Though I did partition it using Windows. I'm not sure it works if you format it with Linux.

    Estranho, eu to usando o KDu Linux e ele esta rodando bem pelo Pendrive e não apresenta esta falha, no0 entanto quando vou tentar rodar ele pela Maquina virtual , ai sim surge esta mesma informação....

    Ainda não sei o que pode ser, talves algo relativo ao Syslinux, vamos ver.....
