That's a strange error. I'd re-read the instructions for unetbootin and load ubuntu onto the stick again. If that doesn't work, try fedora or a different distribution to see if you can load into the system.

I played with unetbootin a month or two ago and it went smoothly for me, but I think its finicky about what is on the stick, so maybe cleaning out everything from the stick before trying again?

At what point does it ask for the CD?
Are you sure your boot order is correct and it is booting from the USB HDD?

Did you try a different distribution other than ubuntu? Perhaps its a strange combination of hardware and software. Try Fedora, just for kicks to see if it works. If it does, load ubuntu again and try try again. If it still doesn't work, maybe an older version of ubuntu and after its installed you can update.
