    So you are trying to install Ubuntu from a USB drive? Correct?
    If the USB drive fails during install, it might be a corrupt download/install. Does it work on another machine?

    No...It does the same thing on every system i try...

    I downloaded from 2 sources and still it does the same thing. From website as iso, and also as torrent.

    I am a new user so dont know if i made the USB bootable right way, but it worked (2 weeks earlier) for me...

    Is there any way to verify the ISO which i have...? and also to make the USB to bootable with some other software than usb-creator

    If you click the links in my signature, you will find several guides that tell you how to verify the downloaded iso files.

    Well, I have never used fsum but I would imagine that you start it up and point it at the downloaded iso file.

    I would start at the Ubuntu website and look for their mirrors page and select a location from there that is closest and offers the best speed.
