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.
Sorry if this has been covered and I'm sure it has, but I'm currently posting from my phone. My #! install won't boot, gives me I/o error on device sda6. The other day it was making bad scratchy grindy sounds from the hdd region :( How can I set up a persistent flash drive that will automatically load to the ram for the time being?
