Cannot create bootable USB with Unetbootin for Isadora

Post by mzsade »

Hi, i checked the MD5sum, it's correct. Unetbootin displays no error messages, and i can see that the files are there but when i try to boot with it, i get a "Kernel missing" message. What am i doing wrong? I had the same issue when i tried Unetboot before with a custom Remastersys ISO, i thought then that perhaps Unetboot was not compatible with a custom ISO and didn't pursue it further.

I personally use YUMI, yes its a windows program but works great in WINE.

I have had mixed experiences with Unetbootin in the past myself. I can't give any specific advice other than to try the above program

Hello mzsade.

Try using imagewriter. It's installed by default in Linux Mint 12/13.
You also have a Windows version. See more info on installation details > http://hacklog.in/?p=167

Just in case you want to make a multiboot USB, you could follow this tutorial > http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1012

Hope it helps.

I've just tried image writer in Mint 17 Mate and it seems to have easily installed a clonzezilla iso to a USB stick for me. I've tested it here on my laptop and all seems well. Great! I've always gone to Windows and used make bat once you unzip all of the contents of the clonezilla zip onto your USB stick but Image Writer is so easy.
