I am trying to install 12.04 to flash using unetbootin.exe. It copies files ok but during the install phase get the following error.

un3142.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

The number varies but always fails at about 33%. I have tried loading Fedor, same problem.
