View Full Version : [ubuntu] can not boot from USB Stick( FAT format)

August 24th, 2009, 06:03 PM

I try to reinstal the Ubuntu now. I downloaded the "Ubuntu remix edition" and but it on a new 2 GB USB Stick. When I start the computer I get the messege: Can not boot from Externel Drive because of unknown format.

I checked the format on the new USB Stick (drive, my computer) at properties in Windows XP. It shows me that it is a FAT format on the Stick (does not show me which FAT 16, FAT 32) .

Why can't the laptop read from my USB Stick?

Thank you for your help!
