Hey, everyone. I have a 16gb flash, and I tried to install ubuntu on it, however, after one try (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ubuntu-...-from-live-cd/) my flash divided in two and instead of 16gb, i was left with only 8. It happened before on the old flash, I mean the partitions.
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 realize I can burn a DVD of the ISO for any OS (ubuntu, server 2012 etc) to install a new VM but this seems like a waste. I just installed XenServer 6.1 and would rather just copy the .iso onto a flash drive on my windows laptop, plug it into XenServer (I can see it in XenCenter under removable storage) and install from there instead of burning a few DVDs.
So basically I installed Windows 8 and have not found it a decent OS, to my chagrin when I tried to install the latest Ubuntu via flash, the flash drive wouldn't load. It just went to the windows 8 startup page. I changed the boot settings and everything, any thoughts?
NOTE: Flash drive created from uncompressing the iso onto my flash drive via 7zip.
