Post Stuck on UNetbootin screen... cycles for 10 secs - 03-17-2009, 02:53 AM


I tried updating to Ubuntu 8.10 using a USB flash drive and now stuck. After the computer starts and goes past BIOS tests, I land on a grey screen, UNetbootin at the top and Default as an only option. If I hit Tab, I get /ubnkern initrd=ubninit_ command, which doesn't mean anything to me (sorry, not a linux guy, new to this). If I hit Esc, it throws me to a black screen with Boot: No matter what I type (exit, etc.) nothing happens. After a few secs, it goes back to the grey screen as described above.

Please help. I have a perfectly good installation ISO on a thumb drive, but just can't get to it. No matter what I select as a start up device, this damn UNetbootin screen prevents me from doing anything. Until this is resolved, i might as well use my Mini9 as a door stop. Ugh!

Thanks in advance
