I never intended to use the pre-installed OS, so I booted the system, read the MS-license-agreement and re-booted with my Ubuntu 10.10 live-USB.
Now something strange didn't happen. The live-USB was recognized, and started booting, bus then the screen just went blank, and the keyboard went unresponsive. I tried again, and I tested the live-USB on my old laptop - and I'm still stuck.
Can anyone explain why this happens? And point to the solution of the problem?
Create the live-USB with UNetbootin instead of Ubuntus detault Startup Disk Creator. It should work now .
