Do you still have the medium that you installed Ubuntu with on the desk top?
If so, why are you downloading again and not using that medium to install on the laptop?
I don't know if your laptop will boot from a flash drive or not.
Reading your other post @ Vista forum, it seems you are missing a boot disk but have a backup image of Vista.
I suggest that if you have an Ubuntu CD to first attempt to run Ubuntu in the laptop as a live CD and not installed on the drive.
That is the best way to tell if the computer is compatible with Ubuntu.
You said you are ready to use Ubuntu exclusively on the laptop and give up Vista. Why not just install Ubuntu on the hdd of
the laptop if it is compatible with Ubuntu instead of using a flash drive?
