View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems installing from USB stick

March 29th, 2010, 02:56 PM
Hello from a Linux noob. Here is my problem...

I have Ubuntu 9.10 64x on a 2GB Cruzer flash drive. My laptop will boot from it but when it arrives at the menu asking if I want to run it, install it, etc, it will not go anywhere from there. I can select any option and all it does is reset the countdown. If I just wait for the countdown to finish it resets itself at 0. I can't get anything to work from here. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A505 w/ Win 7. It's only a week old and I wanted to have a Ubuntu/Win7 dual boot option. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

burn a cd.
or, try rewriting the flash drive.
