  • I don't really understand what you are trying to ask, but why don't you retry to do it. Make sure you have 2GB of free space. – vita-min Dec 19 '16 at 3:50

  • Please shutdown the computer,
  • and after that unplug the USB pendrive,
  • and after that boot the computer again.

Maybe this makes the computer boot as usual again.

If it did not help, it seems Unetbootin used your hard disk drive as a target. What happens when you try the different options in the Unetbootin menu. Maybe it will start a live Ubuntu system, and you can use that system until you fix the problem.

For example, you can create a USB boot drive, boot from that drive, and repair the bootloader in your hard disk drive.

Maybe you should use another tool to create a USB boot drive. In Windows you can use Rufus or Win32 Disk Imager. In linux you can use mkusb.

If your computer does not start from its Unetbootin menu, I suggest that you borrow another computer, and try with one of these other tools, and this time, please check and double-check, that you will write to the USB pendrive, and not to some other drive. (mkusb was made in order to help identifying the target drive and avoid mistakes.)
