How do I make a bootable Flash drive (USB type) with this file:
I tried this: Use
gparted to format to
fat32 (on an
MBR device). This format is fast. (Edit: I also used Ubuntu's
Disks utility to do a slow format. It makes no difference.) Then I used
unetbootin (from the Ubuntu Software Center) to flash the device. When I boot the device it just shows a screen that has one option called "default" and it counts down from 10 and repeats in an infinite loop.
I suspect that the following command can tell you if this image file is meant for "cloning".
isohybrid: fwss31.iso: unexpected boot catalogue parameters
I think this error message means that the Lenovo SSD firmware update tool file is not meant for cloning. I think that if it's not meant for cloning then
unetbootin is an appropriate tool if it would only work.
