Ubuntu Installation trouble
Also posted to Ubunutu forums:
I have recently received my new netbook and am having trouble installing Ubuntu Netbook 10.10. I have also tried installing Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 with no luck. I have never had trouble installing Ubuntu in the past, but this is the first time I'm using a bootable USB drive. I followed the instructions for creating one using Universal USB Installer, but there is a SysLinux error (others have the same problem). I am now trying to install Ubuntu Netbook with a bootable USB made with Unetbootin. It seems to be working better, but after 20 minutes it is still "thinking" at the Preparing to install Ubuntu-Netbook step. This is just after the Select your language page. When I say "thinking" I mean Ubuntu's version of the hourglass and not my hdd or my usb (has an LED). Any suggestions? By the way my system came with crappy Windows 7 Starter that I would rather have not had to begin with. Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated!
When I cancel the installation I briefly see an error message that says: glib warning failed due to unknown user id (0). I can't make out the entire message though.
I have tried a few different bootable usb programs and the disk says there is no error.
