Ok, so I'm currently running Windows, but want to now use Ubuntu. I downloaded Linux Live USB Creator (LiLi) and also downloaded the 15.10 version of the Ubuntu GNOME ISO from the Ubuntu website.
I selected my empty USB drive, selected the ISO, and put it on the USB. There is more than enough space (8GB).
I placed the USB first in the boot order (In my BIOS it's listed as USB-HDD), and started the PC.
After getting past the motherboard screen (It's a Gigabyte motherboard), it tries to boot from the USB, but gives me one line:
The only possible reason I can think of is the message LiLi gave me when I put the ISO on which was that the ISO was not on the compatibility list, so it was going to try and use the same configuration as the 15.04 version of standard Ubuntu.
I have booted from a disk before, but not a USB. In my BIOS, there are several USB options, USB-HDD, USB-CDROM etc, I presume the bit on the end is what it will try to boot after?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Thanks to people that replied, but it turns out that when I recreated the USB with a 15.04 version rather than 15.10, it worked fine, I'm presuming it was simply not supported on LiLi. Sorry for any hassle caused.
