None of the similar errors seemed to help – Lucas Smith Oct 1 '13 at 19:29
I'm getting exactly the same error as Lucas Smith with ubuntu-15.10-desktop-amd64.iso burned with Startup Disk Creator (usb-creator-gtk) on a Memorex 4GB Swivel repartitioned and reformatted as FAT32 (no U3 folder exists.) I have seen other startup disk issues indicating Syslinux version incompatibilities. I'll wait and watch for further developments. – user173876 Oct 25 '15 at 8:41
I forgot to finish the error line. Mine ends with "Boot error" and no other information. – user173876 Oct 25 '15 at 9:00

I have seen a fix for the SanDisk users. It lies with the U3 folder. That prevents startup. Try to delete it and start it up that way!
