USB Live install hangs at boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2012
I'm currently trying to experiment to see if I want to install Ubuntu on an SSD arriving today (I know I'll be installing CentOS too) and so I tried loading it onto a USB drive. I've used both unetbootin, and the live USB link found on the main page, and downloaded the latest 12.4 AMD64 ISO. On boot, I see the selection page to run Ubuntu, I see a ton of text go past to fast to read (but I don't think I saw any errors) and then I get to a purple load screen with a progress bar.
Now, while loading, my keyboard is powered and I can change my caps lock, num lock and such. Then I hear my sound card click on (ASUS Xonar Essence STX, it has a relay for its headphone amp that when the card powers up, makes an audible click) and then my mouse powers up. However, at this point, while I can move my cursor, I can no longer toggle my numlock/scroll/caps lock states which makes me think the system has hung.
Are there any places to find logs? How can I debug this?

Question regarding USB live install of Kali Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2014
Hi I'm completely new to Linux and just installed Kali Linux as I'm reading a book on pen testing. I installed it off a 4GB USB flash pen drive and I was wondering how storing files and programs works? Can I keep using it on the USB or should I now install it as a dual-boot so that I have more space? I'm guessing it can only use the space on the USB stick as I didn't partition my hard-drive. Thanks in advance.

Absolute minimal USB live install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 16, 2010
I am trying to setup my girlfriends old acer POS laptop with a live USB bootable ubuntu install. I did a live USB but found it was not persistant, I have a 1 GB USB drive I would like to use. She wants 2 things, firefox and open office (or wine to use office 2003). Her computers hard disk controller died, so I need to make her computer usable. USB is my only option. The live USB that I tried of 10.10 worked great, but I need it install persistant and have it so she can just save a doc file if she needs to work on a paper. I need to remove the extra clutter (drivers she does not use and any extras she would not need for it to work with a full gui). She is a noobie at computers, its painful to watch how much some days . Please assist on how to get this installed and working, after the initial install I don't anticipate her needing to update anything. I currently have a VMware install of ubuntu working and updating itself so I can do the USB boot thing. Any advice would

Having difficulties installing to an actual hard disk.

Attempts to boot from CD/USB (UEFI) present base menu (e.g. Install Ubuntu, Test Memory, etc.) but hangs after "Binary Whitelisted". It just goes to a black screen.
Attempts to boot from CD (non-UEFI) allows me to get a little further. I can select a language and get to the Install Ubuntu/Check disc for defects/etc. When I hit enter on install Ubuntu it looks like it's going to work, and then goes to a black screen.
I can't get to any logging (that I know how to get at). I've tried removing all disks and going back to a default load on the motherboard BIOS. I've disabled the Secure

Kali live usb install and boot problems with uefi
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 12, 2013
Hey guys I am trying to install kali on a usb and use it as a live distro. I followed the kali efi install guide on kali forums but when I boot from the usb I am brought to a screen that is titled grub GNU version 2.00 and am left with a terminal windows displaying grub>. What steps am I supposed to take from here, or do I need to go about booting differently? I am on an hp m6-k015dx if that helps.
Asus UX31A Touchpad & USB Not Working With 13.04 Install Work with USB Live Boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 23, 2013
I recently picked up a UX31A (non-touch) and installed x64 13.04 from a UEFI booted USB drive. Using the USB drive as a live instance, the pointer and USB devices work fine. However, after the install (and boot repair) the touchpad doesn't work and plugging in a USB mouse (or any USB device) doesn't work either. I've tried every combination of BIOS settings I could think of and nothing seems to enable the touchpad and USB. I followed the directions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AsusZenbookPrime and have flashed the latest BIOS 218.
Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution or have any suggestions?
For posterity's sake, the laptop had a refurbish W7 MBR install, wiping that out and going with a fresh USB UEFI Windows 7 install to be in GPT mode, then shrinking the partition and installing Ubuntu off a EUFI USB boot worked. I had to pick a 'something else' install, but it correctly added a EFI ubuntu entry
Can't boot Live CD/USB or Install
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 7, 2012
Recently I've been trying to create a bootable disk backup of my system disk. I've typically used a LiveCD and then used GPartED in that to do so. (yes, I realize that's kinda asinine). In the process of going about this again, I've discovered that my computer will no longer boot LiveCDs or LiveUSBs properly. I can't even get any other software to properly copy the disk either.
Now, before you say "Oh, check your BIOS" I've done that. It actually boots to the CD/USB, but after setting up for about 5 seconds, it just hangs. Just goes full stop. Additionally, it seems to hang in different spots each time. Unfortunately, I don't even know where to begin to fix this problem. At first I thought it was my new sound card (ASUS Xonar), but pulling that changed nothing.
I've even tried installing rather than using a Live Boot. It does exactly the same thing.
Now the odd part is that the OCZ Toolbox boots just fine (I have a couple of SSDs). And my current installs of Win 7 and Ubun
New build, can't boot Ubuntu 13.10 LiveCD or Live USB to install UEFI problems?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 25, 2014
I just completed a new build...everything apparently is going well except for the small little issue of not being able to get my favorite OS--Ubuntu--loaded up on it.
I downloaded the Ubuntu 13.10 .iso and used Unetbootin to create a Live USB. I then boot from it to proceed with the install, where I can get to the Unetbootin menu. I choose "Install Ubuntu" or "Try Ubuntu without installing", where my machine hangs at a BusyBox shell prompt. At that point, I have to do a hard reset. The keyboard freezes.
To rule out a bad image being written to the flash drive or a bad download, I try another computer where it comes up to the installer or the live desktop.
I try burning an .iso of the Ubuntu 13.10 image and try to boot from that DVD, it doesn't work. Same thing. But, it works on another machine.
Here's what I have...
