First and foremost I hope every1 is in their good health.
My hard disk is going to crash(it failed to boot for some time now...I guess GOD is giving me time to back up before he Pulls the PLUG), meaning the boot sector would be gone too.
I bought a new hard disk, but was not able to create a Master Boot Record on it(lucky??).
The old hard disk has Windows XP SP2 Intsalled on it. Since I have been using Windows for some time now, I thought of using Unix(Ubuntu 9.10 Live). By the way, my CD Drive doesn't work
I Tried using the Unetbootin (ver 377)manager to create a live USB.
The main obstacle comes up when I reboot.The PC boots up from the USB, but immediately after that shows the error
"COULD NOT FIND KERNEL IMAGE:LINUX"
I am using Ubuntu 9.10.
The syslinux.cfg file is as thus :
menu title UNetbootin
menu label Default
append initrd=ubninit file=/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash --
menu label ^Help
menu label oem=OEM install (for manufacturers)
append initrd=ubninit oem=oem-config/enable=true
Could someone let me know WHY I CANNOT BOOT FROM UNETBOOTIN, or any other way to INSTALL UBUNTU on my HDD via USB(since the CD DRIVE is broken) ?
Awaiting your responses
(Also, I did not search on this forum regarding this issue(although I did it in the Ubuntu Documentation), since Unetbootin and XP have already eaten half of my brains, and my company requires the other half, so if some one sends a link to a previous answer , then that's fine.but a proper explanation would be just GREAT!)
