I have purchased an external usb drive and downloaded ubuntu 12-10 desktop i386 and universal
usb installer 188.8.131.52 to drive H. after using the installer in windows it appears to have formatted
the drive in fat32 and all appears ready to boot.
On starting up and pressing f12 and selecting usb h drive - I get " no child node aborting'
'error no configuration file found'
no default or ui configuration directive found.'
Boot- Is there any hope of me being able to get started with Linux?
I have had some assistance from a competent IT freind and realise that my concepts of disk
partitions and booting dual operating systems is something only experience can correct. I am pleased to report that I am able to run iether windows7 or linux desktop and I must say I
am qute pleased with my so far expience with the look of desktop 12.10 .
