I've just downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 (Haven't we all?) and created a bootable USB with my existing 10.04LTS installation. However, when I try to boot it it gives me a message similar to: Unknown keyword in installer. and leaves me at a boot:_ promt (which does not do anything)

Any solutions will be incredibly helpful, because I want to use new Ubuntu!

Thanks for the super-quick reply; editing the syslinux.cfg file works. – JavaNut13 Apr 29 '11 at 23:30
