comment How to Install Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP netbook with Ubuntu-based MI operating system
Success! I had to put this aside for a while, but I installed 12.04 a couple of days ago and it's worked fine except for a problem with Firefox, which I'll ask as a new question. Thanks for your assistance, Tony.

Oh, I was assuming you had to make the bootable USB on the computer you are going to convert. I have another computer that runs Windows. Will that work?

I'll try that route.

Yes. Actually, when I first run the Unetbootin program the dialog box says, "mlabel not found. This is required for Arch Linux install mode." When I click OK, another dialog box says, "7z not found. This is required for either install mode." I clicked OK again and ran the program with the downloaded Ubuntu ISO file. I should say again that I don't have the pure Ubuntu 8.04 but an HP version of Linux that is modified from Ubuntu 8.04. It is all GUI. I have a Package Manager but it doesn't contain the two files you listed above, just some pre-installed games and other apps.

I tried the second option. When I reboot, I get a UNetbootin screen. It says, "Automatic boot in 10 seconds..." and counts down to 1, but then restarts at 10 seconds over and over again. What should I do?
