Ubuntu not booting from USB on laptop (no optical drive)

I downloaded 12.04 32-bit ISO and am trying to make a USB stick with it for me to boot from and install on my HD. I followed the instructions in UNetbootin but my USB stick is missing its bootmgr so it won't boot.

Any advice? I don't have a CD-burner nor a CD-ROM on my laptop which I am trying to install on.

If you're using some linux distro to make the live USB, you can use the commands given in the following link:

How to make an Ubuntu live USB stick in Fedora?

If you're using Windows, you can try any other Live USB creating software such as YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) or LinuxLive USB Creator.

    I found out that it possibly might have been an issue with the USB stick being formatted in NTFS :) Formatted in FAT32 and it worked perfectly! – Nicolai Sorensen Aug 19 '12 at 19:11
