Yes: AMD Radeon HD 7470M, you can gather it from the laptop model in the first post :)

I cannot install Ubuntu using USB stick. When I boot my computer with the USB stick, I got a black screen with a flashing cursor. It did not even show any options! I am running on a Thinkpad X200 tablet computer. Is that a problem with the Universal_USB_installer 1.9.3.6?

I cannot install Ubuntu using USB stick as well. My case is even worse than this thread indicates. When I boot my computer with the USB stick, I got a black screen with a flashing cursor. It did not even show any options! I am running on a Thinkpad X200 tablet computer. Is that a problem with the Universal_USB_installer 1.9.3.6?

I think your problem is different from that of the original poster of this thread. Please start an own thread with a good descriptive title and a good explanation in the first post: hardware, software and problem: a little more details than in your post here. It is OK to post a link to your new thread here.

-o-

- Check with md5sum, that the download was good.

- Try other methods to make the USB boot drive. See this link

Post moved to own thread.

Please do not hijack threads. It reduces your chances of help, confuses the issues, dilutes community input and is unfair to the original poster. Your problem is not the same.

I have edited your post so it makes sense on its own thread. If you would like a different thread title you can change it within half hour or let me know and I can do it for you.

Good luck with it. ;)
