Install problem at step 3 of UNE

Asked by seanjmp on 2010-07-13

Problem installing Ubuntu Netbook Edition on eeepc 901 using iso image on an Integral 4GB USB,all goes well until step 3 (keyboard layout) when it just hangs..... choosing UK setup,have tried new download but same problem. Have used OS via USB boot no problem suring,emailing etc but will not install past step 3! Trying to replace Easypeasy OS which I have used since I got eeepc,any ideas?

Did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?

Thanks for feedback,had assumed that as it was working in USB boot it must be ok? Anyway had heard of md5 but no experience of so re downloading UNE now and will do a check on this version as original one is gone,jumping between computers...

Downloaded new iso,did md5 test and its not matching.....
Am I doing this right? I used this... c71e49ddc17031535408b3dba6ce5802 ....which I got from the md5sum text doc on my USB after converting it using Universal USB installer v 1.7.2 from pendrivelinux as per Ubuntu instructions,this was checked against original download in MD5 check utility v 2.31,any ideas,gonna try an install anyway but think I know whats gonna happen....
Is there any other source for a download?

It means the file is corrupt if the MD5sum is bad. If you use torrents then there is extra checking which can help the download be successful.

A pal had downloaded from torrents and this succeeded,still confused as to why it wasn't possible to download a copy straight from ubuntu site?
Anyways up and running now so thanks again for feedback ;-)

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

It is completely possible. But data can get mangled if you think about the nature of the internet and what it actually is, Thats why the MD5 sum is ESSENTIAL but many ignorant users (mostly dumb windows users) do not MD5 sum then get confused when their installs fail and then they realise their downloads are bad.
