I'm trying to make a bootable USB drive for Ubuntu 12.04.1.
The USB drive created by unetbootin doesn't boot; it results in a
Disk I/O error message.
In trying to create a bootable USB drive, PenDriveLinux installer reports a syntax error in syslinux and then says that the drive will not be bootable. And it isn't. It produces the same "Disk I/O error" message.
Is there some way around this or a fix for it?
Thank all of you for your help. The error I kept getting was this:
An error (1) occurred while executing syslinux. Your USB drive won't be bootable...
After googling around to find out what error (1) was, I moved from my crufty old XP machine to a newer, cleaner Windows 7 machine, and guess what? PendriveLinux created a bootable USB drive on the first try.
I am happy now. :-)
