I can't install Bodhi 5.0 legacy.

I'm trying to install Bodhi via USB because my computer DVD Drive doesn't work.
The USB boots completely normal but after waiting some time I get stuck in a black screen (Busybox), it shows this text:

[sdb] No Caching mode page found.
[sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through.


For what I read it's maybe a problem with the USB being not mounted correctly (or something like that).

So this is what I tried so far:

First I make a booteable USB with Rufus on Windows 7 with the same result.
Next I do the same thing with YUMI and I got the same results.

I dunno if this would help but I got Xubuntu installed on a external hard disk.

Did you try it with the external drive unplugged? You can plug it back in after bodhi boots

Also, do you know what's the processor on this computer? It may (or may not) give us a lead. More info later on this if necessary.

Had this problem too and could only install from dvd, not usb. Dvd install works fine - you just need an external dvd drive.
