I've downloaded Ubuntu 11.10 ISO image. Following the steps described on site I've created a USB stick with the above image (using Startup Disk Creator from a Ubuntu 11.04 PC) Rebooting the system I can see just "INSTALL Ubuntu" as first item in the menu. I cannot see "Try Ubuntu" option.

PS: I've also tried to follow "Install Ubuntu" but in the end the wizard for disk partition is displayed and it suggests to erase my "master" HD.

Any idea?

An option for a live CD ("Try out Ubuntu") is only provided from the Ubuntu Desktop installation CD but not from the Alternate CD.

You may want to download the image for the Desktop CD to be able to try out Ubuntu without installation.
