It boots off the previous HDD just fine, but obviously there are a number of missing drivers, so I'd like to just wipe it all and start fresh.
I've created a Ubuntu 11.10/64bit pendrive that simply will not boot. I also tried this with unetbootin.
I've tried a Kingston Data Traveller USB stick as well as a 1gb SD card.
The symptoms are:when I try to launch the USB key (from priority boot OR disabling the HDD as a boot device), it will simply go back to the BIOS setup screen.
The device has a single 2gb DDR3 module, a 60gb HDD and a logitech K400 wireless keyboard/mouse dongle attached. I've tried a couple different ports for that. (The K400 works fine in the old Ubuntu install)
Also tried to format the USB stick to work as a Windows 7 installer. No go.
(both flavors - unetbootin for Ubuntu 11.10 and Win7 worked fine on another laptop.)
