I've spent the last two days exhaustively searching for an answer to this issue. It seems similar to others at first, but I assure y'all it is not quite the same.
I have used
unetbootin, Universal USB Installer, and something else I cannot recall at the moment to try and create a Mint 16 (tried both cinnamon and mate) USB installation disk. After receiving various error messages and researching them, I found that I am supposed to rename the
isolinux folder to
syslinux as well as two other similarly named files within.
Problem is, the
isolinux/ folder is always empty. It's not that I have my viewing preferences set to hide anything. And, furthermore, I've downloaded the ISO image from multiple sites with the same results even checking the hash to verify download integrity.
Simply put, no matter what I do, nothing is transferred into the
isolinux/ folder during USB creation. I've tried manually downloading the files and implanting them manually from various sources to no avail.
I'm still relatively new to all of this, but learning quickly. What am I doing wrong?
Please forgive me if an answer to this exact issue exists elsewhere. I honestly have been looking for it as best as I know how, (in between kid duty and naps), for almost 36 hours.
