I was having all kind of trouble installing Ubuntu Server today. I tried writing the disc image to a USB in a variety of ways, but it kept failing at various points of the install, check disks never succeeded, and I couldn’t help but notice I wasn’t even seeing a couple of the screens I expected too.
Over lunch I found this:
Due to changes in syslinux, it is not currently possible to use usb-creator from 14.04 and earlier releases to write USB images for 15.04 or later; we believe that it is also not possible to use usb-creator from a 15.04 or later system to write USB images for earlier releases. For now the workaround is to use a matching release of Ubuntu to write the images, but we intend to issue updates soon to work around this incompatibility
So the issue was the computer I was creating the USB on wasn’t compatible with the Ubuntu server image I was creating.
Here’s the solution:
- Right click your ubuntu-15.10-desktop-amd64.iso > Open with Disk Image writer
- Choose your usb drive and click Start Restoring… and follow the instruction.
Staring at a computer screen when you’ve got conjunctivitis sucks.

Lesson learnt via a client…if you’re going to have a complicated sales site with upsells, e-commerce, and tell people what to do at each step via videos…record the videos last, after you understand how the system will work.
It’s no good saying “on the next page I’ll take your shipping details” if that’s not what’s actually going to happen.
