I tried making a boot-able flash drive like described in the install guide, here, on the wiki.Using Unetbootin - did it - didn't boot from the flash drive (just doesn't work).I thought: Hei, I'll do it again maybe I did something wrong.No way - my flash drive is now 8MB (and it was a 32GB FLASH DRIVE!!).I tried everything, fdisk, diskpart in windows, Killdisk ...
I have a Dell Dimension 4500 with Windows XP on it. I wanted to boot Ubuntu from a CD/DVD or my flash drive, but I can't boot it from the CD/DVD I created or the flash drive. The CD/DVD will not boot from the DVD drive (you can only view DVDs with this drive) or the CD drive (because it is a DVD). The computer does not recognize my flash drive as a removable drive.
I have live ubuntu 12.04 desktop on a usb flash drive. I've gone into my BIOS and changed the boot order so that it runs external drives first. On startup, when the flash is in, it will start to boot it. But, it doesn't do anything but give this message:

The underscore just flashes. I don't know what to do from here.
I can't boot 10.10 from my SanDisk cruzer flash drive on my Macbook Pro. I made my flash drive from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-mac-osx. When I have the flash drive plugged in, I hold down alt when I restart, but nothing except Macintosh HD and a Recovery Drive (which isn't the flash drive) shows up. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
I installed Kubuntu onto a 32 Gb flash drive. I used these instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In.../UEFI-and-BIOS I just want it to boot on my UEFI computer (Surface Pro 2) so did just the first part for UEFI. Grub is installed on the flash, as was selected during installation, BUT when I try to boot Windows without the flash drive I get a grub recovery(?) screen.

I am trying to install Ubuntu 64-bit alongside Windows 8 32-bit. I have burned multiple discs with Ubuntu 64-bit and 32-bit and I mounted the .iso file to a USB flash drive. I went into bios and changed the boot preference to CD/DVD when I was attempting to boot from the DVDs and removable drive when I was attempting to boot from the flash drive.
