How did you make the Ubuntu USB stick? What steps did you take?

please take a look at

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

it is self explanatory.

Here some general info on howto made a bootable usb stick with ubuntu on it...

Download ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386.iso from http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/
please prefer the torrent protocol to download the iso image

BE SURE to put on the usb stick using unetbootin http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ a valid md5 verified iso image.
unetbootin can be installed and used on Ubuntu and on Windows...

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

if the md5 of downloaded iso image doesn't match with the md5sum on this page:

http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/MD5SUMS

please download the iso.torrent image using the torrent protocol from here:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/

If you are using Windows, install Deluge torrent client: http://deluge-torrent.org/
if you are using Ubuntu you have already trasmission installed to manage the .torrents files (you can also install Deluge on Ubuntu).

The torrent protocol have good download errors checking, downloading using the http or ftp protocol may result with a file with errors in it.
( This is the main reason to ALWAYS check the md5sum of downloed iso images before to burn it to a cd or to tranfert on a usb stick ) .
