I am attempting to install 12.04 on my HP Mini netbook which runs their MI (mobile internet) operating system, based on Ubuntu 8.04. I've downloaded 12.04, inserted a USB stick, and am looking for the Startup Disk Creator but can find no such program. What should I do now?
You should be able to install the Startup Disk Creator in 8.04. Look in Synaptic Package Manager for usb-creator-gtk and usb-creator-common and install them.
Alternatively, you could download and install UNetbootin. See

It is very important to get the output device name correct, as if you write to the wrong device, you can permanently destroy data on it (even if it's a currently mounted drive).
