I have a computer, with no CD drive, with no operating system on it. Something went wrong while I was resetting XP and the computer now has no operating system. I am currently trying to install Linux on it via a USB drive. I only have access to a mac and this computer.
I used unetbootin to load Ubunto 12.04 [Live] onto a USB drive.
I then try to boot from the USB and it stops at this message: "- BusyBox v1.18.5 (Ubuntu 1:1.18.5-1ubuntu4.1) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)"
Details on the computer:
Asus 1005Ha ACPI BIOS Revision 1601
Processor Intel Atom, 1.6Ghz,
System Memory: 1024MB
IDE Configuartion ATA/IDE Config. = [Compatible] (Options Compatible & Enhanced) Boot Device Priority = (USB: Lexar USB Flash] Quiet Boot = Enabled OnBoard LAN Boot Rom - Enabled

Do you have any ideas where I could go next?...I'm rather out of options
