I want to create a Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD. So I open Startup Disk Creator in the Ubuntu Dash. I go through all of the settings, and then click 'Make Startup Disk'.

Make Startup Disk

Almost immediately I get a window that only says 'Installation Failed'.

Installation Failed

I tried it again, and got the same result. I even downloaded a new copy of the .ISO file from the Ubuntu website. Sadly, the same thing happened.

How may I avoid this issue? Thanks in advance!

Try clicking the Erase Disk button first. That will delete everything from that device, so make sure there is nothing important. –  mikewhatever Jun 8 '12 at 1:02
I did, several times. Thanks though. –  TriforceLZG Jun 10 '12 at 4:53
