I receive the following rather cryptic error message when following the instructions on how to create a bootable USB stick on Windows on ubuntu.com using Windows 8:
SYSLINUX 4.07 EDD 2013-07-25 Copyright (C) 1994-2013 H. peter Anvin et al
Unknow keyword in configuration file: \╨╤
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
I did find the very similar question “Unknown keyword in configuration file Boot:” error when booting off a live USB on askubuntu. However none of the proposed solutions work in my case. There is no
syslinux/syslinux.cfg on the USB stick and entering
help at the boot prompt doesn't have any effect either.
Could the error message
\╨╤ indicate an encoding issue with either one of the configuration files?
The contents of /uui/syslinux.cfg read as follows:
# This file was automatically populated by Universal USB Installer - http://www.pendrivelinux.com prompt 0 DEFAULT append LABEL append CONFIG /isolinux/isolinux.cfg APPEND /isolinux
