I had Ubuntu 12.04 working fine with my laptop. Later i upgraded to 12.10. It was working fine for some time.
Then i installed some packages to make my MTS device work. This made Ubuntu crash. Later I tried to reinstall Ubuntu 12.10. But i am not able to boot even from usb stick now. When ever i go to boot menu and select the option to boot from USB stick, i see the a purple screen with the shifting dots patron (Loading). Then it hangs and nothing works (dots don't shift any more). The same boot able USB sticks works fine in my friend's laptop.
I went to recovery mode and then updated grub . But no use :-(.
I tried to install older versions of Ubuntu also. But no use.
