View Full Version : Ubuntu 64bit live USB in VAIO laptop VPCEB2Z1E

Hello all

I'm trying to run Ubuntu in my 4GB Sandisk Cruzer and it just won't work. I'm following the instructions showed in the Ubuntu Download page and nothing. I plug the usb stick, and restart the laptop (after configuring the boot menu) and I just got a black screen with the "boot error" text. I have tried Ubuntu 64bits, Ubuntu 32 bits and even Fedora 14. I think there might be a trick hidden in the VAIO config that won't let me run linux on a live USB but just can't find it. I have tried different live usb creators like "Universal-USB-Installer-" recommended in the ubuntu web page and "usubuntu Live creator" and the one for Fedora.

Any idea?
