I'm trying to get Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop onto a flash drive (formatted to FAT), to repair a Windows laptop I have. Per the Ubuntu site:
- I've installed the Pendrive Universal USB Installer.
- I had it download the ISO file ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso.
But when it completes and I try to boot it up on the laptop, I'm getting the error:
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
I've read the info about renaming the isolinux files to syslinux but, that has not been helpful. The syslinux folder already exists. However, it appears that it's not being extracted correctly. All the file names (within the syslinux folder) seem to be random bits of words. See below:
If I use 7-zip to manually extract the ISO file, the isolinux folder is there but, not the syslinux folder. The correct files appear to be in this folder. I tried creating the flash drive with UNetBootin, using the same ISO file and when I went to boot the laptop, all I got was a generic "boot error".
What am I missing here?
This is my first go-around with Ubuntu so, any assistance is appreciated.
