When I boot Xubuntu from a flash drive on the old Dell computer mentioned in the about me screen it works fine, but when I try to boot it on another computer (the computer I'm typing this text on) it says "boot errror" and I have to manually shut it down. When I take out the flash drive, it boots windows xp fine. Please help! By the way, I haven't tried booting any other OSes from usb on this computer.
OK, this isn't my idea, but here's what I've found via Google:
Having spent all morning solving this problem, I thought I'd share the solution in case it helps someone else out there...
Problem: Inspiron 530 and 545 PCs won't boot Ubuntu 13.04 live DVD. Boot error message shows. DVD works fine on other PCs
Attempted Solution: Use USB image. USB stick works on other PCs, not on the Dells
1) Burn plop boatloader onto a CD http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/index.html
2) Make USB image of 13.04
3) Run plop from CD
4) Choose USB and boot into 13.04
