    Ubuntu Instal Problems

    Ok, so I went to the ubuntu download page downloaded the Pen Drive Linus's USB installer and then continued to download and install ubuntu 11.10 to my flash drive. I then started up the computer that I am trying to instal this onto (Windows 7 machine) and set the bios to boot from the usb. Everything worked fine up until this point. When i start the computer with that setting rather then going straight to the ubuntu setup instead it just sits at a black screen with a - blinking repeatedly.

    I am trying to do a clean install of the computer and have it run on ubuntu alone, it worked in the past but i changed it over to windows 7 for other stuff but now i dont need it.

    Help me plz,
    Buckweed

    You are burning the ISO to a disk using 'create Disk Image'? Then boot from the CD.

    Did it manage to create a CD but just wouldn't boot from it?

    Re: Ubuntu Instal Problems

    Hi, sorry, I thought I'd jump in as I have a similar problem.
    I just installed Ubuntu via a USB stick, I can't use the optical drive, and everything went well enough until I rebooted at the end of the installation. I just get a blank screen.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanx!
    Carl

    Actually, it makes more sense simply starting a new thread I guess, as the solution in this one is not applicable to my problem.
    Thankx anyway!

    +1. Exactly right. Start a new thread with a descriptive title and pertinent info.
