I had Windows 7 running on a Lenovo SL400 laptop without UEFI (double checked) with NTFS/MBR set up. An install of (MD5-checked) Ubuntu 13.04 Server (note that, no GUI) from a flash drive resulted in no boot, no details as to what was going on, just a white blinking underline cursor on a black screen.
I'm going insane here so I have to ask. I have previously been running Openelec on my HTPC off a 16GB UB Flash Drive. I know want to use that flash drive for something else so I am trying to reformat it. When I insert the flash drive into my desktop (which is running Windows 7 for the time being, so I only have access to Ubuntu via a live CD) GParted scans endlessly.
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 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 am running xubuntu 13.04. When I insert a flash drive in my account, I can't save things to the flash drive or remove them from the flash drive. I am able to read from the flash drive. How can I give myself permissions (using sudo) to perform these operations for all flash drives?
I am getting a receiver with USB flash drive support. I plan on putting 15 GB of mp3s on a flash drive and using it in the car. Do I need a super fast flash drive or can I just buy the cheapest usb 2.0 drive I can find?
I'm looking at this

I went to copy an iso file onto a flash drive, and since there was no indicator, I figured it was finished and pulled it out. I plugged it into Windows and ignored the warning, and started ImgBurn, which told me the iso was corrupt. Sure enough, it was not the right size. I plugged the flash drive back into Crunchbang, and overwrote the iso, with the full iso (this time I *moved*
What would be the best route to installing ubuntu on to a flash drive (usb)? Is it better to create the LiveISO and save data to the flash while in LiveISO format, or repartition the flash drive and installing to new partitions?
