Can't install Ubuntu on USB drive


I followed the instructions on the pendrivelinux web site to install Ubuntu on a usb HD and everything loaded but will not boot. It gets to GRUB and then just hangs.

This is probably somewhat hardware and BIOS dependent. Try searching using your computer model/hardware info and "USB Boot" or something similar.

Or post your computer info and USB drive info here. How is the USB drive formatted?
