Hello

I'm totally green with Linux, and I decided to test Ubuntu 11.04 on my Lenovo Thinkpad T520 as it has no OS currently. I created USB boot media with unetbootin on a 4 Gb stick, and it worked with my old T60 but not with this T520 (it just jumps back to boot device selection few seconds after selecting USB as there was nothing written on the stick).

Specs of the machines are

T60:
C2D T5400 CPU
3 Gb RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 GPU

T520:
Core i5 2410M / 2.3 GHz CPU
8 Gb RAM
NVS 4200M / HD Graphics 3000 CPUs
Intel QM57 Express Chipset

Any ideas what could cause such behaviour?

Thanks:)

edit. Bios settings have been checked and they're ok

Hi, welcome to the fora.

Have you checked that the BIOS version is updated?

Yes, BIOS is updated. There should be tailored version of Ubuntu for this laptop, I must try to find it
