I just had a wierd problem with an HP 650 Laptop and installing Ubuntu.

I couldn't find my flash drive or a CD so I had to use a small external USB hard drive to do it. I plugged it in, booted it up, and did the Install as normal.

After it was through, I restarted and removed the USB hard drive. Guess what...It installed the ISO image to the hard drive, so now the Live CD is on the hard drive. I tried to install from the installer that got installed on the hard drive and now it's in an infinite loop of installing the ISO over itself. I don't know how this happened other than I used Unetbootin.
