I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS on a server that has only USB boot capability (no cdrom, no pxe). I have tried to use 3 different tools but all have failed. The tools I have tried are these:
Linux Live USB Creator 2.8.27: Fails when the installer gets to "Load installer components from CD" Universal USB Installer 22.214.171.124: Failed fairly early trying to mount /mount/casper (or something like that) UNetbootin (no version info): Failed when the installer gets to "Load installer components from CD"
How do I (from windows 7 x64) prepare the ISO on to a USB drive to allow me to install ubuntu?
I have checked the install log (/var/log/syslog) to see why it fails and this is what I see:
anna WARNING **: package retrieval failed cdrom-retriever: error: Unable to find 'pool/main/l/linux-lts-saucy/block-modules-3.11.0-15-generic-di_3.11.0-15.25~precise1_amd64.udeb'
Checking that folder, the closest resembling file is this:
The only difference is 'amd64' is 'amd6' and '.udeb' is '.ude'.
As more than 1 tool generates this error, could this be a mastering error in the 12.04.4 amd64 ubuntu server iso file?
