I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 Server (64bit) on a Dell Insprion n5520 using a USB stick. I used the Universal-USB-Installer-1.8.9.4 which has support for 12.04 server but you can also replicate the problem with LinuxLive USB Creator 2.8.11 or unetbootin 575.

The computer boots up the installation process ok. It gets through the Ubuntu language, locale and keyboard selection. Then starts loading additional components. At this point it gets about a quarter of the way through then throws big error message saying "There was a problem reading data from the CD-ROM."

When I Press no

this error arise

Installation step failed. An installation step failed. You can try to run the following item again from the menu, or skip it and choose something else.

The failing step is: Load installer components from CD

What should i do ?

Its simple, You should try to make Bootable USB again. the software you used to make bootable usb was not successfully made it bootable. This time try Startup Disk Creator to make USB Bootable. For this contact any person having Ubuntu installed in his/her system. –  Saurav Kumar Sep 4 '13 at 19:55

Its simple, You should try to make Bootable USB again. The software that you used to make bootable usb was not successfully made it bootable. This time try Startup Disk Creator to make USB Bootable. For this contact any person having Ubuntu installed in his/her system. Or use your previous Live Ubuntu CD/DVD (if you have).
