View Full Version : [all variants] Ubuntu on USB Harddrive

May 18th, 2008, 12:01 AM
The other day i tried to install a linux distro on one of my partitions on a external harddrive, yet I can't seem to make it work, i've tried several distros off http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ yet none seem to work, I boot up, It detects there is a bootable USB and it goes to a black screen with "GRUB" on the top left, and a falshing _ right next to GRUB. Any suggestions?
