    installing 10.04 from USB stick error:unknown keyword in configuration file: gfxboot

    Hello, my first question here!
    What I've done (all this in ubuntu 11.04):
    1) I downloaded ubuntu 10.04 LTS iso image using the bit torrent protocol, the link is from ubuntu.com.
    2) I make a bootable USB stick using Startup disk creator.
    3) booting from the USB I get:
    unknown keyword in configuration file gfxboot
    vesamenu.c32: not a COM32R image
    boot:

    it sticks in a loop repeating the last two lines.

    Looking for help here and there, I found compatibility issues between older versions.the fix editing syslinux.cfg doesn't apply, the file is already like that.

    NOTE:
    * I already installed 10.04 in this desktop using a live CD and everything went OK.
    * I already installed 11.04 in this desktop using this procedure (making the USB in 10.04) and everything went OK.

    Thank you in advance.

    For some reason it is refusing to recognize Graphical GRUB.

    I already solved this issue, trying some old posts advices.
    In the prompt boot: I tiped live and the installer just started.
