I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 from a bootable flash drive. When got window of the starting install ubuntu, after a while I get an error message:

mount:mounting/dev/loop0 on//filesystem.squashfs failed: ... Ubuntu :: Error - Mounting /dev/loop0 On //filesystem.squashfs Failed ... Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.

I can't install my Ubuntu 11.04 in my PC yet for that problem. I spent a more time and didn't find any suggestion from Internet.

It appears that you have a corrupted filesystem.squashfs I would do an MD5 checksum on the iso if it passes that then I would reinstall it to the flash drive and try again.

To do the MD5 with windows I recommend WinMD5
