    The usb key is perfectly fine, it boots fine on maybe 4-5 other machines (namely my older asus and my thinkpad), and it looks like this:
    Code:
    sudo fdisk /dev/sdc

    What is on your small first partition? And it is marked boot, while I guess your Ubuntu system is on your second partition. Maybe this will confuse the boot process of the eeepc (?)

    This is a big step forward

    Maybe something in the eeepc is not truly 64 bits (I have only tried a 32 bit system on an eeepc that belongs to a friend). But it might also be some problem that is solved in the 12.04 version. After all, 12.04 is also an LTS version, and I am a happy user of it (mainly using lubuntu-desktop).

    Re: asus eeepc 1015cx boot stuck

    Final solution:
    Asus EEEPC 1015 CX has Intel Atom N2600. According to Intel, this CPU has 64 bit instruction set (http://ark.intel.com/products/58916/...specifications), but the N2600 CPU in eee pc does not have 64 bit instruction set, which is probably a bios issue.

    I am returning this netbook and I suggest anyone to NOT BUY THIS.

    Yes, this was the case.Which is interesting, because I have maybe 15 pieces of older eeepcs in various configurations and this has never been an issue ...
    Thanks a lot for Your help
