    Exclamation BOOTMGR is missing (USB installation)

    Hello, I have windows seven installed and am not so happy with it. So i've been want to switch to ubuntu.

    I use a USB to install my OS's, because my netbook doesn't have a cd drive, but when I boot off of my USB I get:

    the BOOTMGR is missing
    press any key to restart.

    How can I fix this?

    Well the reason why this pops up in your setup is because you probably did copy the files right over to your flash drive. Did you copy the .iso image "ubuntu i386" with the usb installer or did you just copy the files using winrar or unetbootin. If you did not try usb installer found on the ubuntu flash drive installation portion of the site, or just go to www.pendrivelinux.com

    The problem might be with the format of ur flash drive... format ur flash drive with FAT32 and then try USB installer, it should work then... Sorry for the late reply but, i m new to the ubuntu community...

    Thanks hary106, I had the same problem as Brii. I had formated in NTFS and had the BOOTMGR message. I formated again in fat32 and everything went great.
    Is there a reason why ntfs fails here?
