    Question Unable to boot from flash drive , shows black sceen

    Hi ,
    i want to to install backtrack 5 on my laptop which is "hp pavilion g4-2082la" but when ever i tried to boot my laptop with bootable flash drive it shows black screen.
    I make my drive bootable using UNetbootin.
    please suggest me what is the problem, Backtrack is tested on VM i.e copy is not corrupted.

    i been doing some searching over the internet and found out another solution that is , install Ubantu and then Install Backtrack over it , any risks involved in that?

    Details :
    Version - BT5
    manager - GNOME
    Arch -64

    tested on another machine ASUS X52F-XF1 Working Fine

    Please provide us more details, what version of Backtrack, what architecture, did you follow the Wiki?
    Also did your USB drive work on another machine ? Did you install the graphic drivers ?
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !
