I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my macbook. I downloaded and put it on a usb stick as per these instructions. Everything seems to work fine until I restart my comp and try to boot from the USB: The only option it gives me is macintosh hd.
Hello. My wife has just bought a Samsung NC110P, and after a few months of windows, she is very tired of it and wishes to install Ubuntu as a dual boot. However since the netbook lacks a DVD drive, I have created a USB installation stick. If I boot the computer with the stick inserted, it ignores it and boots windows.
I have a dual boot computer (Ubuntu 11.10 or 11.04 / Win7). Everything was working fine until yesterday when it froze while I was under Win7, after that I can't boot the computer anymore and it keeps restarting. The restart occurs right before the when the grub should start (I can't see the grub at all).
I've tried to boot from Ubuntu live CD, but that doesn't also work.
I have been running 12.10 from a USB memory stick ( 8 GB) --- is it possible to shut down and restart and save any and all changes right on to the stick? And then fire up in the same computer? Or how about in another computer?
Hi, I created a bootable usb stick with ubuntu 12.04 LTS to install on my computer alongside windows. It installed perfectly, and everything works great, except for my wireless card (working on that). But when I restart my computer, it automaticly boots into Windows 7. I have to plug in that bootable usb drive and hit f12 and then select usb drive to get to grub to boot linux...
ive been trying to dual boot Ubuntu with windows 8 but so far I haven't been able too.
the laptop im using is a HP Pavilion g6-2240sa pre-installed with windows 8.
ive made the bootbale USB with Ubuntu 12.10, it installs but when I restart the computer boot straight into windows, no grub boot options. I can get into Ubuntu once by doing an advanced restart and booting from the Ubuntu partition.
I downloaded the 12.10 server ISO and used Linux Live USB to create a bootable stick. I used this stick to go through the install process. The target is a Lenova Q190. The install process seemed to go fine and it got to the point where it said to remove the media and restart. When I did so the Q190 reported:
