I've been trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 from a bootable USB drive to my OCZ 256GB SSD, and have had nothing but problems. At first it was hanging at a black screen but then, following some directions I found on another askubuntu.com questions, I set
console=tty1 as a boot option and saw at what point the installation process was freezing:
I have this issue using the 32- or 64-bit image. I have downloaded the ISOs multiple times in case I had a corrupted image. I have tried creating bootable USB drive on another Ubuntu machine using both usb-creator and unetbootin; I have also tried creating it on Windows using LinuxLive USB creator (same thing as usb-creator on linux) and unetbootin as well.
My PC is a UEFI system, if it's relevant.
I am very confused since I have installed Ubuntu 11+ from USB many, many times and have never had an issue. How do I resolve this issue? My only recourse right now is to run Ubuntu inside a virtualbox.
