I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my Asus Windows 7 laptop.

I used Pendrive to make my USB stick bootable, and then I changed my BIOS to launch from USB 2.0 (PMAX? Is that right?), but when it boots now it comes up saying "No child node detected."

Any ideas?

I tried using the Windows installer but after I selected Ubuntu after the restart, it came up with a message basically saying that I couldn't do it.
