The install has failed, I can't tell why and how as I have no experience with UNetbootin
Look in sda3
There should be a folder called boot with a bunch of files and a folder named grub
If these are absent the install has failed utterly, if they are present something else has happened
In the failed utterly case I think you have to install again, in the second case report back and tell us what you have there
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
