I'm currently trying to install Ubuntu from Live Mode via a USB stick. I set it up using Pen Drive Linux, and have Windows 7 installed alongside it. My specs are as follows:


2GB RAM
500GB HDD
Intel HD Graphics (on-board)

I've been spending hours looking up how to install this, looking for solutions, and experimenting with it myself.

Here is the output of sudo-lshw:

ubuntu & windows have to be set the same way, related to efi/gpt config (search 'oldfred' posts/threads about 'ubuntu alongside windows')

So, what is the problem? You really do not say. Does the Live session run good? Do you want a guide to installing?

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GraphicalInstall

That is what you will see if you select the Install alongside option. If you choose the Something Else option then you will see dialogs like these and have to make to correct decisions.
