I'm trying to install ubuntu 12.04 on my acer aspire 5551-2450 laptop from a bootable usb drive. I have the usb drive all ready to go but when I boot into it - it just hangs on the install. All I see is SYSLINK...with the names of some people and a blinking cursor. I'm not sure whats going. I tried 32 bit and it hang. So I tried the 64 bit and that also hangs. My Win7 is currently running a 64 bit version.
Would trying it from a cd make any difference?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
