I've tried creating a USB boot drive but it always fails with a message from Syslinux and a boot: prompt.
unknown keyword in configuration file FILE0 boot:
I've checked the md5sum of the iso - the iso is fine. This occurs with both the 12.04.2 and 13.04 images. Both the images are the 64 bit variants. I have not tried the 32 bit variants.
None of the computers have Windows 8 installed (Vista / Windows 7).
I've tried multiple tools to write the iso to the usb disk (unetbootin, lili, startup disk creater - but none of them work.
Some posts mentioned to edit the syslinux.cfg file - I couldn't do that as it was a binary file (started with FILE0 and then some binary )
I've also tried multiple USB flash drives and none have worked. The drives work fine otherwise and one of them is brand new. Hence I don't think it is a problem with the USB pen drives either.
I think it's something to do with UEFI - but not sure what. I intend to try the 32 bit versions to check if that is the case as I guess the 32 bit ones are not UEFI?
I'm not sure what's wrong.
