The CD drive in my wife's laptop is broken, so I only have the option to
install through USB and I have had nothing but severe problems. I tried
with both a 8.04.1 disk and a iso with "create a usb startup disk" and
got the same outcome, a busybox shell prompt when trying to boot on the
I tried using unetbootin and it never even got to the first menu on the
USB drive and gave me an error saying it could not find a kernel.
I lastly tried the isotostick.sh script and I got the same busybox shell
when trying to boot into Ubuntu on the USB drive.
Help!! If I can't do this my wife's laptop will become nothing but a
very expensive paper weight.
