    I don't really understand what Windows7 has to do with it. But I'd really like to know what that taskbar is called. Very pretty. :) Try to add more details and it'll be easier to provide an answer. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Apr 2 '14 at 16:30

Is the PC dual boot?

OR, is Ubuntu 13.10 (or Windows 7) in a virtual container?

Wild guess::

The last stages of creating a 'LiveUSB' needs a compatible kernel and boot files (from somewhere) and Startup Disk Creator writes these to the USB in privileged mode.

This is NOT the just the standard 13.10 install, so anything could be wrong here ..

  • I can see a "WinXP Executando" button at the bottom, so there is a VM running. So your guess is probably correct: WinXP tries to write to the USB in privileged mode. – Jos Apr 3 '14 at 8:32
  • Or 13.10 tries to write to USB (in privileged mode) from inside a VM. Needs more details .. – david6 Apr 3 '14 at 9:12
