This question already has an answer here:
I recently downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a flashdrive to try Linux out and installed the file and used the universal USB installer to install that file onto my flashdrive. After changing the boot sequence on my laptop, I got a screen asking me for what language I wanted so I clicked English, but after that it just gave be a black screen and I can type stuff on it. I rebooted my laptop and I got the black screen again, not the Ubuntu interface.
Am I doing anything wrong here while trying to boot up from my flashdrive, because I really want to give Linux a try!
Any help would be appreciated on this!
Edit: The question that my question appears to be similar to asks for where to get the ISO file, not why I'm getting a black screen every time I boot up from my pendrive. I have the iso downloaded from unetbootin on my flashdrive and my boot sequence changed in my bios settings, but every time I boot up ubuntu, I get a purple screen and then I get a black screen and I can type words, numbers, etc on it.
