    Hangs at ... H. Peter Anvin et al

    Hi, I installed ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64 on a pen drive using Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.4.3, but when I try to boot, the system hangs, and I can't get past the first line (... H. Peter Anvin et al). I have a 64 bit Aspire 5551-A from Acer. I am using a 4GB USB key.

    Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks!

    Some have issues with download, have you verified it with md5sum?
    Some have issues with installer, sometimes just redoing it or using a different one.
    Some have issues with certain flash drives.

    I have used older Kingston & generic Microcenter flash drives without issue.

    Brand of flash does seem to make a difference. One user's experience liked 32G Sandisk
