installing ubuntu from a usb ...not working!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2012
Hi there first post....So its been quite frustrating trying to solve this problem after following all the instruction on the web page for installing the ISO for ubuntu 11.10 onto a USB stick it just won't boot...
As I run a acer aspire one d257 which is a netbook I have no cd drive ...I used the Linux Live USB creator to make the USB pen drive which went sucessfully but when I try to boot from it ,it will just hang on a black screen with a white cursor flashing on and off in the top left corner.
I have configured the bios correctly with the usb fdd as the first boot priority and everything..usb ffd is the drive that recognizes the usb memory stick I have stuck in.
Ofcourse did some googling and someone solved a similar problem see link post 67
however the type of reconfiguring doesn't seem possible in my BIOS settings because it has extremely limited functionality ...
He seemed to think it was a problem to do

Ubuntu 9.10 USB Startup Disk Creator breaks flash drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 17, 2009
Since updating the Beta and later a clean install of Karmic 9.10, using the USB Startup Creator has caused trouble. I now have 3 unmountable (system doesn't see them) and 1 read-only flash drives. I'm afraid to try any more in case I permanently destroy them too. The permissions of the read-only one are for something unknown and even as root I am blocked.
I see others are having somewhat similar problems.
Solved my own problem. I used gparted to delete and reformat drives. They were formatted as 'boot' and apparently this makes them unreadable. Sorry you wasted time reading this!
Ubuntu dual boot HDD partition problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 10, 2013
Well, basicly, I have Win 8 64 bit, and I want to install dual boot Ubuntu. I tried couple of times but Ubuntu seems to not recodnise my partitions, only shows as 750gb free space. I tried backtrack and fedora, and It's the same problem. Then i tried to defrag, check for errors etc, did some magic with fixparts and gpart and now it shows SOME of the partitions, but shows them as free space and some error on them. It's kinda messy. Can you help me please? <3 Thank you <3

Gentoo/Ubuntu Dual boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 19, 2008
I have two IDE drives, /dev/hda and /dev/sda. Sda (sata) is set to boot as the primary drive and contains the /boot partition holding the grub setup.
I have just installed Mythbuntu on /dev/hda3 (as a temporary learning process prior to installing on a dedicated PC), and it installed a separate grub setup on that partition using the system of device notation peculiar to itself (and other ubuntu systems!). Ie:- all drives are "sxxx" and have UUID disk references. The installation did not, fortunately, overwrite the boot sector of either of my drives.
I use Gentoo linux, and have a relatively simple grub menu. I have tried adding a section to boot into Mythbuntu using variants of the normal method to allow for Ubuntu device nomenclature but without success.
I find that I am unable to boot into Mythbuntu using any grub setup familiar to me. Grub reports "unknown device" and similar messages. I tried chainloading, rewriting the Mythbuntu fstab file to the 'nor
Install ubuntu server onto USB Flash drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 2, 2012
I'm trying to free up as many SATA ports as possible. So since I have a couple USB 2.0 ports directly on my MB I want to install the OS directly to the USB flash drive. So I will be running Ubuntu Server 12.04. It won't be running anything heavy duty (Samba, CrashPlan, SSH, Webmin) so I'm thinking I don't need swap space and can set the main partition as tmpfs in fstab in order to cut down writes to the flash drive and extend its life. Has anyone done this? I'm I going to see a huge hit to performance? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Can I install Ubuntu from the USB Drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 19, 2012
I am considering using Ubuntu. I have already downloaded v11.10 to my USB drive for storage and such. My question this. Can I install Ubuntu from the USB drive to the hard drive? I would be partitioning the hard drive such that I will have Windows XP Home in one partition and Ubuntu in the other partition. This question (or related) have been asked before but just have the time to go through all the various threads searching for my answer. Thanks.
HOWTO: Printing from Ubuntu to a USB Printer on Airport Extreme Base Station

How to print (from a Ubuntu/Linux box) to a USB printer that is connected to an Airport Extreme Base Station
Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility for your tinkering with your computer or your Airport Extreme Base Station. What I did worked great for me on my AEBS, but I can't assure you of your own success. Proceed at your own risk.
When I saw Ubuntu Linux for the first time, I immediately wanted to use it on an older Mac that we had sitting idle. I installed it and connected it to our already established network, which had an Apple Airport Extreme Base Station (AEBS) as its wireless hub. Connected directly to the AEBS was our EPSON Stylus Color 740, which we could print to from any Mac in the house, including our laptops (wirelessly). Getting the Ubuntu box to print to it should be easy, right?
Well, one might have hoped so, but this was not the case. I found hints and tips at various sites and forums, but nothing seemed to work. After about twenty hours of strug
