    13.04 live USB does not work - no video

    I am running 12.10. I downloaded 13.04 daily build recently & created a live usb. When I tried to boot through the usb I got the initial screen with small keyboard logo at the bottom. then I got a blinking cursor for a while and then the monitor went to sleep mode (no video).

    The same live usb works just fine on my laptop.

    what could be the issue?

    The USB Start Up Disk Creator is Broken in Both 12.10 and 13.04! You need to use 12.04.2 or Older for it to work okay!
