Ubuntu – Unable to boot 12.10 AMD64 Live USB on GT5436E


This is my hardware


I have refurbished the system with more RAM (3GB total now) and a new CPU(Core2Duo E2700 2×2.53Ghz)

When I try and boot the live USB of Ubuntu 12.10 amd64 I get the boot loader menu but when I press enter to boot from live USB, the system beeps and nothing happens. I can keep pressing enter but it just keeps beeping.

I have reflashed the BIOS to the most recent version for the chipset. Is there some option I haven't enabled perhaps? What could it be?

I am running 12.10 32bit with no issues.

It's a problem in the /syslinux/txt.cfg of the bootkey.

Where it says /casper/vmlinuz, this has to be /casper/vmlinux.efi. Rename it, then you should be set.
