I made an Ubuntu 17.04 Live USB using Startup Disk Creator in order to install Ubuntu on my Laptop/tablet hybrid, then once I booted it on that device and selected "Try Ubuntu without installing" I got the following:

Then I tried booting it on the machine that I created the USB on, which has Ubuntu 17.04 already installed and running just fine, and I got the same result (except for the device name obviously). I also tried burning the ISO onto the USB using Disks, but I got the same exact result on both devices. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this?
The device I am installing it on is a Lenovo MIIX 310, which successfully booted 16.04 from the same USB stick. I might install 16.04, then upgrade through it, but I prefer to install 17.04 as I already have the ISO.
