Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have downloaded the Universal USB Installer and Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop as described on your site. I installed it to a 16Gb USB stick including the format option. Now when I try to boot from the stick into Ubuntu I get a couple of lines of script then a screen with EasUS Todo Backup with Backup. Recovery, Clone and Tools options, but no sign of Ubuntu starting. Where is the start Ubuntu option please? I can find no reference to EaseUS on your help pages.

Have you tried formatting the USB drive and doing it again? –  Mitch May 28 '12 at 12:29
Yes Mitch, first thing I did. And Ive tried fresh downloads with a clean new USB stick too. And used it on a different machine. It would appear to me that the site has been hijacked to plant EaseUS in the downloads. Or could it have been dragged in from a hidden restore partition? But I look for better minds than mine to advise. –  Malcolm Lawrie May 29 '12 at 7:39
Can you tell us specifically where you downloaded the two items from? –  John S Gruber Aug 20 '12 at 3:15

Please use UNetbootin to recreate the USB drive and try again. Other people have reported problems with Universal USB Installer too.
