View Full Version : [ubuntu] Could not find kernel img:/casper/vmlinuz Help!

Hey, I'm pretty new to all of this but could someone help. I'm using an acer aspire one netbook and attempting to install ubuntu 11.04 on it using flash drive. I extracted the installer using the universal usb installer. Anyway as soon as I get to the ubuntu installer screen it won't let the installer begin and says this: "could not find kernel img:/casper/vmlinuz. I have tried many things including typing in this:"vmlinuz initrd.img" and extracting the data to the flash drive again but nothing has worked. PLEASE HELP!
