I'm trying to install 12.04 on an ASUS eee pc 1005pe with a USB stick. The installation starts normally, then it says it has encountered an error and takes me to a desktop where nothing works. I shut it down the hard way and tried again, same result. Now it just goes to a cursor blinking on a black background. What went wrong and how do I fix it?

  • Hard to tell from your description. Did you check the md5sum of the iso ? – Panther Feb 8 '13 at 20:46

Unless you're dead set on using Ubuntu, I would try installing Xubuntu or Even Lubuntu. I have an older eeepc (2G Surf) and this worked for me.

Also try installing Ubuntu from an external CD drive.
