[SOLVED] Unetbootin & Pendrivelinux bot get "An error occurred while loading the archive."

Post by jamesofyorkshire » Thu Mar 28, 2019 5:13 am

I'm trying to load Lubuntu on an old laptop.

First I'm trying to download either Pendrivelinux or Unetbootin to my PC (running Mint). When I try to open either download, I get this message: 'An error occurred while loading the archive.' So I can't even get past step one! Any ideas?

If you're using the Cinnamon desktop, you can right-click the iso for Lubuntu and choose Make bootable USB stick
Linux Mint 19.1 (Cinnamon)
LMDE 3 (Cinnamon)
GeckoLinux 150 (Cinnamon)

It seemed like a better solution than downloading a bunch of unnecessary software. Besides, I've seen some people in the forum complain about Unetbootin 8)
Linux Mint 19.1 (Cinnamon)
LMDE 3 (Cinnamon)
GeckoLinux 150 (Cinnamon)
