July 4th, 2009, 07:22 PM
I have a HP 2140 with Windows XP Home and I wanted to install ubuntu remix on it.
I followed all the required steps described in the installation guide but when I select
booting from the USB stick, it gives me back the line "boot error". striking the space bar
a couple times I also got this message: :Non-system disk or disk error. replace and strike any key when ready"

Can anybody help me?? :(

what method, specifically, did you use to put ubuntu on the usb stick?

You need to type

syslinux /dev/sdb

replacing sdb with your stick's block device (sdb if you got a SATA HD, sda if you got an IDE HD).
