I am currently using windows 7 and wanted to try out Linux. I found out that Ubuntu is the most easy to learn Linux OS. So I create a Live USB of Ubuntu 14.04 with the help of the following link:

How to make your own "Ubuntu LiveUSB"

I created the Live USB successfully, but when I started my PC, i encountered an error message saying :

Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Along with a lot of commands which I cannot even understand. I would be very grateful if anyone can tell me what is wrong.


Unfortunately, all software (including Live USB creators) contains bugs. I assume this is an issue with Pendrivelinux (which I experienced to be very buggy.)

Give UNetBootin a chance. It is the best and safest Live USB creator I ever used, any I tried lots of them...

(And don't be afraid of UNetBootin's boot menu, as some people reported to me...)
