I have this HP USB, a literal lifeline, as it's my only tool for fixing my computers. It's 4gb, and I've used it mercilessly over the past few years. But, not I think I broke it whilst experimenting. I was testing out a ported version of the Chrome OS for Chromebooks, called, "Chromium FLOW (OS)". This worked well on my new laptop, so everything was fine. After this, though, the flash drive was permanently split into two partitions. After a few days, I was able to mend it with the Linux Mint disk utility (which is notably more reliable that GParted), but now it doesn't seem to boot anything.
Here we go; two separate computers, three different .iso's, and using both Unetbootin and the similar program that came with Linux. A lot of variables.
Linux Mint 12 64-bit, no codecs
Ubuntu 12.4 desktop
Lubuntu 12.4 desktop
Computers tested on:
Dell Latitude D630 (years old, test computer now)
Dell Inspiron 15 (four days old)
I think the flash drive is broken, or at least rendered unbootable. My Xbox 360 doesn't even recognise it. Anybody know how to set it back to normal? And don't say "Format it!", Because today alone, I've done that at least thirty times.
Thanks for answering.
