I have made a live boot USB using the UnetBootIn tool for Ubuntu 9.10. I have Windows XP SP2 installed as the primary OS, and want to make a partition for Ubuntu. However when I try to boot it via USB, it just goes to the boot menu of Ubuntu, then I enter the default type for installation. After that nothing happens, just the Ubuntu logo shows up and just that nothing happens after that.

I can try the simpler task also i.e. install via CD but I want to know what's not working with this USB boot method.

It's also worth taking a look at wubi - this lets you install Ubuntu from within XP without creating a partition or changing XP's boot process.
