    NO way of intall any DISTRO differents PC's

    Well most of us we are having the same problem no idea why...

    I've touched everything in bios and keeps going wrong, I've touched ASCI SATA. I've put as first boot in bios my HDD and then in loading screen when I turn on the computer on I press F12 to chose from where I want to boot... I chose USB bla bla...

    Everything works from my USB, windows, hiren's... bla bla and even the linux isos, but then same problem.

    Busybox

    (initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system



    Third Computer that it happen to me the same I touched as I said everything in bios but there is not way to make it run, in 3 differents computers c'mon guys... and besides a lot of people that talks about the same, change the USB port touch this in BIOS do this do that. but for me there is no way... WHY??


    I think I'm gonna give up.

    It says what you need to know:
    (initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system


    what is on USB disk? .iso file?
    did you use something like unetbootin or linuxliveUSB?
    http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
    http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

    Did you check the md5sum after download? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

    Have a look what I found (is it correct the expression? always good moments to learn about everything)

    While I was trying to install several ISOS in several pc's in the screen in which is usually loading Lubuntu/Ubuntu
    I've press Alt+Tab and I've seen the console writing this...

    /init: line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found
    /init: line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found
    /init: line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found


    Infinite times...


    I need help pls....

    I've never used Yumi so I don't have any experience with it.

    If you are using Windows to create your USB then try using Win32 Disk Imager instead.
    It's basically a Windows version of dd with a GUI so it should be the most reliable way of creating a bootable USB. Unlike all of the other methods your USB will be using the bootloader from the iso file, instead of syslinux or the grub chainloading method which most of the other tools use.

    well guys I've finally finish my installation LOL, I came at 00:30 and I've been trying until 9:00 in the morning LOL I woke up at 4:00 and still the going xD
    well I've installed Ubuntu tried kde, but ubuntu is gnome or unity? and now I'm just studing the distros and how to install them and so on... to get use to it.
    well finally I could intall UBUNTU, just because I used linuxliveUSB...

    In response to your desktop environment question: Ubuntu 11.04 and up runs Unity by default, and its fallback view is based on GNOME 2.0. Unity was forked from GNOME (https://www.gnome.org) in 2010.
