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,
