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 ...
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.
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.
When I used Windows, I could install a program to a flash drive by selecting its drive letter. How can I do that in Ubuntu 11.04? I want to install a game to a flash drive. If there is terminal commands, could you tell me what those commands might be? Thank you!
For various reasons (not important here) I've decided that the best way to fix what's wrong with my laptop is to nuke, reformat and re-install from scratch. Normally, I'd download the install DVD's .iso, but I'm having trouble getting things to burn correctly on either my desktop or my laptop.
