View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lucid Lynx x64 Server Install

I'm getting really frustrated..

I want to install Ubuntu Server distro. First i downloaded ubuntu-10.04.1-server-amd64.iso and "burned" it to my usb-pen using UltraIso software for windows. That booted from the usb, but just after punshing in the language etc it complains that it cant find the cdrom or something like that. then i try the www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/Universal-USB-Installer (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/Universal-USB-Installer) tool, but that wont boot at all with this same iso mentioned above.

ok, i throw in the towel and burn it to a darn CD. it boots, but somewhere during the process it stops and asks for the same cd that is actually in the drive already. there is a thread about this here: http://ubuntu-ky.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9779449

I then wanted to find an easy iso that i could throw on my usb-pen and install the whole thing through ftp like i did in the old days with floppies. but man, i got lost in the documentation with no clear path on how to do it.

thanks for any help on getting up our new server, which my boss wanted up yesterday ;)
