I'm not sure if this should go here, but I recently switched from Windows 7 to Xubuntu. I'd like to try, and maybe install different distros (such as Ubuntu or Kubuntu or even Linux Mint) so on my Netbook, running Windows 7 Starter, I installed Unetbootin. I downloaded the Linux Mint iso and I reformatted my drive.

When I load Unetbootin, it won't recognize the drive even though the netbook will as the 'e' drive.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I don't have a USB stick (it got stolen and I can't afford another) and only recordable DVDs that have already been used.

Any help is appreciated; but please keep it simple. I'm still new!
