View Full Version : [ubuntu] usb installation fails

July 12th, 2013, 08:02 AM
in a pc without cd/dvd drive i am trying to install ubuntu 12.04 LTS server edition 32bit from usb.
by making use of the pendrive linux and the iso i have created a bootable usb drive.
the system boots and after choosing the language and territory the installation fails due to a missing cdrom.
i do not have lan connectivity at this point to start a netinstall.

is there a way to install ubuntu server 12.04 server 32bit from usb?

I think you have a problem, because you use the particular Pendrivelinux method to make the USB boot drive. The Ubuntu server version 13.04 might work (as well as cloning of iso files work) with most Ubuntu desktop iso files and Ubuntu mini iso version 13.04. See this link

Howto make USB boot drives (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1958073)

But there are other methods to make USB boot drives, that might work better with Ubuntu server 12.04 LTS. Are you running Ubuntu or Windows in the computer, where you try to make the USB drive?

If Ubuntu, you can try usb-creator-kde or Unetbootin. If Windows, you can try Unetbootin.
