Here's the problem; I'm trying to install Ubuntu:Maverick Meerkat using a USB flash drive on my dell vostro but when I try to boot from it, it say "BOOT ERROR". I used Universal-USB-Installer- to create the bootable USB flash drive. Any idea?

I tried the same process on other machines and it works fine.

Have you tried using this particular USB flash drive on other PCs? BOOT ERROR usually means a problem creating the bootable volume. –  CarlF Oct 28 '10 at 14:28
