Ok, I'm trying to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my MSi Wind u100. I have the ISO, UNetbootin, and a 2GB USB stick. I've followed the tutorial to put the ISO onto my USB stick and it seems to have worked. I get prompted to restart after it's finished.

When I restart, I hit F11 as it says on my startup that F11 is for "boot options", so I'm assuming this is what I should select. It takes me to a screen where I can choose between devices to boot from, and one of them is my USB stick. So far so good.

But when I choose it, it takes me to a screen with the options

Default
Help
And something for manufacturers which I don't quite remember.

Then underneath those options, it says "Press [TAB] to edit" and underneath that a message that claims it will autoload in X amount of seconds, but whenever it hits X=1, it simply restarts the countdown. If I hit ESC it takes me to a screen that says

Boot:_

and nothing else. If I type something in here, it returns with "cannot find kernel (word I typed)".

Any help would be much appreciated.
