    None of these files should be on the USB stick.

    First, the .exe file must be installed in a Windows system. Please post back when that is working.

    Re: My Ubuntu went off for good after some updates

    I've found this link but now I understand less... https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/FromUSBStick

    It says that can not be used a USB stick but a flash drive (?????????????????). I thought that was the same thing but called differently... My stick is more than enough, is 64GB. I did the stick using a Mac OSX (this MacBook Pro with Maverick).

    What is a USB-creator? What has to do a CD drive in this business?

    It says "If you want to boot in UEFI mode and install your Ubuntu flavour alongside Windows, you should use for example the ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso directly". precisely what I have in my stick but I am not trying to put it in the Lenovo with Windows 8 (Should I?) but ion the Shuttle that has not previous OS, the first one was 12.04 until the bl**dy updates.

    I found the information totally confusing and means nothing to me... I am not at that level I am afraid (I am not at any level... I am thick like a brick).

    13.04 has reached end-of-life and is no longer supported. Time for plan B.

    Flash drive, USB stick/dongle, thumb drive = the same thing.

    Sorry mörgæs.

    My last post did cross with your last post, so when I was writing it and sending it still I had not yours, it did show up immediately after I did send mine.

    What do you mean? That I must download both files in the Lenovo with Windows 8?

    Re: My Ubuntu went off for good after some updates

    You install this in Windows: Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.5.2.exe

    You then launch it and when it asks for the image you want to burn to USB, you point it to this: ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso

    You then reboot and set the machine to boot from the USB stick.

    Hi Bucky Ball.

    Sooorry? Do you mean that 13.10 is not supported but 12.04 is supported? But if 13.10 is newest than 12.04... I don't get it...

    "Flash drive, USB stick/dongle, thumb drive = the same thing" - "That" is what I thought but the Ubuntu help doesn't opines the same... it seems to me... I use myself more "dongle" than anything else.

    As I said to mörgæs, I am not installing it in a Windows machine at all but in a Shuttle without OS. The first OS that I put inside was 12.04. The Shuttles X50V2 and V3 come without OS, RAM, HDD, keyboard, mouse and without CD drive, are designed to each one finish it as he/she pleases. I've got one for someone else and finish it with a Windows 7 inside and this one for me with Ubuntu 12.04.

    You said:

    I realise now that you actually mean you have 13.10 on your stick, not 13.04, so disregard.

    Re: My Ubuntu went off for good after some updates

    Right mörgæs.

    I have now in my Lenovo, in Windows 8, on "Downloads":

    ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64 Type: Disc Image File
    Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.5.2 Type: Application

    Fanny thing (to me of course): When I open properties of Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.5.2 it says "Description: Universal Linux UFD Creator", and in "Open" says "Program Name: Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.5.2.exe". So, was "that" what that link meant with "USB-creator"? Still I found that information confusing.

    Also opening the properties of ubuntu-13.10-Desktop-amd64 says "Name: ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso".

    What next?
