I'm trying to install on an old XP laptop I had lying around. I did a complete disc wipe prior to trying to install.

My install hangs at various stages repetedly, no error messages or anything, it just freezes.

I'm beginning to think it's a CD drive hardware issue. Can Ubuntu be made to install from a thumb drive?
