    please be specific in what you're asking - are you installing it? Running of live cd? Do you have an already installed system? – Sathyajith Bhat Jun 17 '12 at 10:28

If you are trying it from a USB Live System witout using the recommened "Universal USB installer" or usb-creator-gtk, it is not unexpected.

I make an Ubuntu iso bootable by extracting it's content in a pendrive. Then use sudo syslinux --install /dev/sdb to create an mbr. then renaming isolinux folder into syslinux folder, then booting from the usb. In this case a welcome screen is show.

But if you are trying to boot using grub2, you most probably use this kind of command or entry in grub.cfg file

linux /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.lz quiet splash --  
initrd /casper/initrd.lz  

this case you have to put only-ubiquity in the linux line (2nd line).
so that the line becomes
linux /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper only-ubiquity initrd=/casper/initrd.lz quiet splash --

Hope this will help
