XBMC LiveUSB (formerly "LiveXBMC") V1: an USB disk image
#12
I used that (BTW-the link isn't working, but used the one on previous page to find.) info and retried things. I unpacked everything the 1st time simply using UltraISO, and unizp'd all the same files as this method, but the version of HP format tools this time allowed me to format with FAT, whereas the other version only let me do FAT32 or NTFS, so maybe that's what fixed it.
But, it still doesn't boot into Ubuntu. What happens is, after a few seconds, it says "Enter name of boot, to boot .... Hit Enter, 2nd line BOOT:" so i hit enter, then it shows a bunch of lines for the next maybe 8-9 seconds, then goes and shows a barely readable screen (about 20 lines or less) which keeps blanking and redisplaying REALLY fast (per 1/2 sec.) constantly showing the same thing, and constantly refreshing infinately, with nothing ever progressing. I can barely read "XBMC Distrubution isn't responsible for....", and some other stuff.
The only thing i can seem to do is CTRL-ALT-DEL, which then says "CTRL-ALT-DEL Recognized, and will reboot" or SOMETHING like that. I did follow the instructions to a T.

-Formatted FAT system, 4gigs.
-Undisk'd the files from the 1st page main file over to the USB drive
-Grabbed syslinux file, unzip'd to C:\syslinux, CMD'd into that dir, and did said command "syslinux.exe -f I:" (I is my USB drive letter).
-Rebooted, and got the quickly constantly refreshing screen of info after it looks like it tried to boot a bunch of stuff up til that part.

The ONLY part i didn't do, since it seemed to partaining to Ubuntu install, is the unzipping of DSL files, since i'm using the ones from this main zip file. What could be causing this to happen? Did i still do something wrong by chance?

I am using AMD dual-core 4400, nvidia GF 7600 256MB video card.
