Boot problems

Postby llinux on Thu Mar 14, 2013 6:00 pm

I used the Windows 7 Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.2.9.exe to install linuxmint-14.1-mate-dvd-32bit.iso to a SanDisk 32GB USB drive (1GB extra storage). I first tried using UNetbootin and was able to get Mint to run without any persistence. After reformatting the usb to fat32, I did the Universal-USB-Install. The files on the usb are:
M:\.disk
M:\boot
M:\casper
M:\dists
M:\install
M:\preseed
M:\syslinux
M:\autorun.inf
M:\casper-rw
M:\license.txt
M:\md5sum.txt
M:\MD5SUMS
M:\mint4win.exe
M:\Uni-USB-Installer-Copying.txt
M:\Uni-USB-Installer-Readme.txt

When I try to boot into the usb drive, I choose the 'Start Linux Mint' option, but I am getting the following error:
'Invalid or corrupt kernel image'
'Boot:'

Any answers as to what is going on here or what I could type into the 'Boot:' parameter to get it to start? I have tried reinstalling a couple of times to no avail.

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Oh Boy! Just checked the MD5 of the iso file and it is wrong. The file is apparently corrupted.
