Failed LInux Ubuntu Netbook Remix Install
Posted on 2009-12-23
Hey everyone - I have a Dell Vostro a90 with Ubuntu 8.04, however I would prefer to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix (version 9.04 or 9.10, either is fine). As the Netbook has no optical drive, I am forced to use a memory stick (Kingston 4 GB).
I have tried numerous attempts at installing, but every time it failed. Just for a sanity check, I attempted to install the ISO in VMware Fusion and had the same issue, proving to me that it was not my memory stick causing the issue.
Booting from the memory stick brings me to the Installation Options, with the default have a 30 second counter. I click 'Enter' and nothing happens. The 30 second counter resets itself. The same is true with any other option I choose. I click 'Enter' and the screen refreshes however I am still stuck on the Installation Options screen.
Can anyone suggest how I should proceed?
