After deciding to install Ubuntu (12.04) on a newly bought Netbook (Acer Aspire One 756 with Intel Dual Core 847 and 2 GB RAM, Linpus linux pre-installed), I have had trouble getting it done.
I have created a bootable USB Stick witch Ubuntu 12.04 (which works fine for my desktop machine) with pendrivelinux. However, I am not able to boot from that USB stick.
I am aware of a similar case (http://askubuntu.com/questions/196831/acer-aspire-one-756-with-pentium-b967), however the solution there (switch boot mode to "Legacy" in BIOS) does not work for me: There simply is no adjustable "Boot mode" in the BIOS. Yes, I really tried hard to spot it! I can change the boot order so that it has my USB stick on the top of the list, but it won't boot from the USB stick anyway.
Hopefully, I have not overlooked any answers when searching for a solution. Apart from the question I mentioned above, I could not find a fitting thread.
Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: For me the issue is solved in so far as I managed to install Ubuntu 12.10 (see comment below).
