I have an ASUS EEE PC 900. I am trying to install using a bootable USB drive. I have tried installing Ubuntu 11.10 and 10.04 as well as Lubuntu 11.10. Every time a get a repeating message to the effect of

udevd[100]: timeout: killing '/sbin/blkid -o udev -p /dev/sdc' [252]

followed by a message saying that process was killed and then nothing.

What can I do?
