Installing Ubuntu 16.04 on an Acer C720p chromebook

I booted a Ubuntu LiveUSB on my Acer C720p and I got this error:

Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path
gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image
boot :

Pressing tab shows boot options: live live-install

But typing live and pressing Enter results in another error:

Not enough memory to load specified image
boot:

The solution is to type live mem=1900m or whatever amount of memory you have.

Not enough memory to load specified image
boot: live mem=1900m

Then Ubuntu LiveUSB will boot as normal.
