    Ubuntu 11.04 Beta Desktop

    I put Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Desktop Beta 1 on a flash drive using 7-zip and am trying to install it on a (this is all I know about it) an HP G71 laptop, but when I hit Esc (as instructed) to interrupt the boot process, when I hit USB DEVICE, It starts up with Windows. HELP!!!! Is there a way to do a basic install with wubi without booting up from the drive?!?!?!?!

    What OS are you using to place the image on the USB?

    You need to use PenDriveLinux or Unetbootin to place a bootable image on the USB.

    There is no UBUNTU 11.04 in Pendrive, so it doesn't show up in the SELECT ISO.

    That is what I used from within Ubuntu. The installer detected my grub and didn't over write it, so I had to boot 1010 and run update-grub.
