View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot Boot Ubuntu from Flash Drive

December 15th, 2013, 04:53 AM
I've tried Unetbootin and Universal USB installer. It shows the Purple Ubuntu loading screen, but once it loads, it gets stuck on a black screen. I've done it before on this laptop and it worked then, so I'm pretty confused about it. It's not working on my other laptop either. The USB drive works fine otherwise.

When you get the menu, type F6 then add nomodeset to the line.

Try Yumi...
Create a bootable flash drive using Yumi..
Worked like a charm for me
