When you say that none of the options work, what happens? If I remember correctly, I've always used the second option on your list. Does nothing happen? Or does it try to boot to Linux Mint but fails somewhere?

Did you verify the MD5 checksum of the ISO before your used UNetbootin? Given that the USB drive boots and presents you with the menu makes me think that you used the correct options for UNetbootin.

Also, how much RAM is on this notebook computer?
