I've used Lili, LinuxLive USB Creator, and Universal-USB-Installer.
My laptop is a half year old Y510P Lenovo. With 4700MQ, 8GB G.Skill, 128GB SSD Patriot M4, and 2x755M Nvidia.
My bios won't even recognize the Adata stick. I must've created the live usb a hundred times and tried to boot the same amount of times. I can't figure out why it won't boot. Tried different ports, as well.
It gets to the choosing boot parameter (try, install, oem, check), and after that I just wait in vain most of the time. And if it does start loading, it gets stuck and I have to wait for a long time in vain. And if it does end up booting up, it lags frequently and for ages. At one point I managed to get to the installation part, but it froze at the partitioning stage.
I'm am at a loss. I previously managed to successfully install Ubuntu twice with the same gear without issue.
