I created the stick with Unetbootin. The stick boots fine, but after language selection the installer says that CD-ROM is not in the drive. How can I get around that?

The desktop disk works fine, but I can't use it.

I cannot use usb-creator-gtk since it gives me Segmentation faults for some reason... So I have to stick with unetbootin.

Use the Startup Disk Creator in System --> Administration

It gives me a Segmentation Fault when creating the stick :( – Epeli Feb 3 '11 at 20:44
Use an older (or newer) iso like 9.10 or 10.04 or 10.10 to create it – Pitto Feb 3 '11 at 20:47
10.04 worked fine, but 10.10 just gives segmentation faults. Wtf? – Epeli Feb 12 '11 at 12:22
Probably a bug in 10.10 :) – Pitto Feb 17 '11 at 13:06
ps that's why I always choose LTS :) Please mark the answer as right and upvote if you've found this correct :) – Pitto Feb 17 '11 at 13:06

The tool recommended in that post fails with a segmentation fault. That's the whole point of the question! – Pointy Dec 26 '12 at 1:11
