    I have the same problem.

    I am stuck at step 3... I tried almost all the ways.

    1. tried "guess map"
    2. changed the make of the pen drive(4GB) San disk and Kingston
    3. Tried 3 different laptops.
    4. tried GNOME 32 BIT and 64 BIT.
    5.tried different types of layouts too.

    Right now trying a 32 BIT version on a 16 GB pen drive.

    Does Default allocation Unit size matter?

    The target machine is :

    ASUS 1015 PEM, (a netbook with a gig RAM)

    Could someone help us here.

    I tried installing ubuntu, and I happen to find this error.
    If someone could help me with this, would be glad.

    I am not able to find a good solution though.
