http://askubuntu.com – I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10. However, I get the following error: (initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system I get this every time I try to install it on an old dual core PC. I'm booting from a USB but don't have any other usb ports in use. Is there something in particular that I'm doing wrong or should I try installing using a CD? (HowTos)
