I have an Acer Aspire 5349 laptop and have been trying to install Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. I used linux live usb creator and mounted the .iso to the pendrive and I set my laptop to boot first from the usb and the computer recognizes it as usb Sandisk Cruzer micro so I dont know what the problem is. When I boot from usb it shows "SYSLINUX 4.06 EDD 4.06-pre7 Copyright (C) 1994-2012 H. Peter Anvin et al" and nothing happens when I hit any keys. Any help appreciated.

  • Try formatting your flash drive to FAT32 and try all the process again. Jun 6, 2015 at 16:03
  • Use win32diskimager to write the iso to your usb drive.

The Syslinux message tells us the USB creator has actually done its work on the USB, so it certainly looks like you have followed the process correctly.

This makes me think you may have a bad ISO image. Perhaps you should download it again.
