My special lady friend is relying on me to supply her with a USB stick with Xubuntu but I'm having difficulties.
I've been following this pendrivelinux.com
tutorial on putting 7.10 on a USB stick, albeit I'm trying to do with Xubuntu not Ubuntu, but I was told it wouldn't make any difference.
Along the way I came across a few problems and when I came to try out the final result all I got was a black screen saying boot error.
The problems I encountered were:
Step 12: When it says to remove the drive and insert it again I get an error message when the drive is inserted again. "Unable to mount the volume 'Ubuntu710'" When I click the details drop down it says something about "Cant read super block"
I ignored this and carried on but found another snag at step 17.
In the tutorial it says 'Ignore any "cannot create symbolic link" errors' in a big bold box so I guess its OK to get an error message here, my problem is I got a different error message it said:
"cp target: 'media/ubuntu710/' is not a directory: No such file or directory
Are these two problems contributing to my Boot error when I later try it?
If anyone else has another method of doing it then please let me know. I'd really like to get this sorted.
