    Well, UNetBootin gave me a different start menu, but the same results.

    Re: Unable to Boot 12.04 from USB

    Most systems do not have a flash drive under USB, but under choices for hard drives. Have you looked under hard drive boot choices. You also should have a one time boot key that also gives those choices as well as UEFI/BIOS boot order.

    Re: Unable to Boot 12.04 from USB

    I am using Phoenix - AwardBIOS. My only drive boot choices are diskette drive, hard drive, optical drive, USB-FDD, USB-ZIP, USB-CDROM, USB Device and Integrated NIC.

    Interestingly enough, I have been continuing to try to use "nomodeset" on every different combination of boot options and once I actually reached a line to where it says "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!" It hung up from here and I had to restart manually. Not much for progress, but at least it's something different.

    Do you also have a one time boot key. It is f12 on my system, but it varies.

    Under hard drive (+) do you get a second menu?

    On my menu, hard drive isn't expandable.
    I am not sure if I have a one time boot key, F12 doesn't seem to do anything but I haven't tried any other keys yet. I thought this all might have something to do with RAID, but I have tried everything with it enabled and disabled.

    The flash drive only appears if plugged in while booting and it is bootable. Non-bootable flash drives do not appear (I think - as every flash drive I have is bootable now).

    The flash drive appears from my simplified boot menu - not going into BIOS. It boots as it normally would, so I know it's accessible. It also runs flawlessly on my laptop. I'm worried that this video card issue is going to keep me from enjoying Ubuntu .
