I have a 8GB flash drive, and another 1GB flash drive that contains an ISO file of Xubuntu 12.04. I am trying to write this ISO image on to my 8GB drive, so that I can boot into it and install Xubuntu on my hard drive.
Currently, I am running the same Xubuntu version from a Live CD -- I messed up while writing so I can't install it using the CD.
My HDD is empty, there is no OS on it yet.
I have tried both using dd to write the image, however when I boot nothing happens -- just a white cursor blinks. I also tried the same with UNetbootin, however I get the same result. No splash screens or other messages appear, just the cursor when booting from the flash drive. It's not an issue with my drive/BIOS as I've written images to it before (on Windows). Both of these were written on the drive with a freshly-formatted NTFS partition.
Does anyone know any tools that will do this successfully, or know how I can solve the blinking cursor issue?
