I made Ubuntu 12.04 USB stick with unetbootin. When I select my USB drive in boot menu, I immediately get a black screen and blinking cursor. What causes this?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

This sounds like a bad USB image, try checking the MD5 of the download before making the USB stick. – Jorge Castro Apr 30 '12 at 3:11

I suggest that you make it with Linux Live USB Creator - If the problem still occurs try changing the flash drive. Hope this helps.
