    I regularly use the Universal USB Installer from PendriveLinux.com and have found it to generally work better than any other USB boot creator -- but there's a catch.

    The tool provides you a list of distros you can choose from when creating the USB. What has worked best for me is to scroll to the bottom of the list and choose the generic option. Since the tool writes all the files needed from the ISO, that has tended to work best in my experience.

    Also, does it actually say "boot error"? Or is there a different message that you are generalizing?
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
