I was trying to install Linux Mint (and a few other OS's) through UNetbootin. The ISO's burned alright, but when I tried to boot them up, I got the message: "Non-system boot disk. Press any key to reboot." I can't figure this out, so please help if you can.

UNetbootin Is A little complex. Maybe UNetbootin Didnt Create A boot file or something. I Recommend You Simply Use The Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator if your Using A Usb.

If your Using A DVD/CD FOllow Here

If you Want To Use A USB Key Instead (Strongly Recommend it) Follow Here:

Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator doesn't work since somewhere around 12.04. Whoever maintains that software needs to fix a lot of bugs. – Adam Feb 9 '14 at 0:01
