I tried to install Ubuntu Server from a flash drive using UNetbootin, because my optical disc drive is broken. When I created the bootable drive using UNetbootin, there was no problem.

When I tried to install it on my computer, after booting it shows the UNetbootin menu where you can install Ubuntu Server. But when I choose to install it, my computer restarts and I land at the UNetbootin menu again. This process repeats.

Is there something wrong with my computer? Is the drive broken or is that a software error?

How can I install Ubuntu Server from the flash drive, then?

Have you tried another USB drive? How about trying the USB drive on another computer? Have you tried a different Ubuntu image/version? Aside from the optical drive being broken, was the computer previously working OK? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 3 '12 at 19:43
