View Full Version : [ubuntu] Booting from USB - missing OS message

January 22nd, 2013, 06:59 PM
Hi, I have been looking through various forums for a solution and have been unable to find one.

I have a Toshiba L450D which was running windows8 beta. I tried to install Android and for some reason I cannot now run windows - BOOTMGR error. AlI see is a blue menu with android and windows as options and neither runs (android is for a ASUS)

I have no CD drive as my 2 yr old pulled the tray out!

So I thought try Linux.

Using unetbootin I created a bootable USB with Ubuntu 12.04 on a FAT32 16gb drive. I have to create this on a MacBook running mountain lion.

When the USB runs I just get a missing operating system line and it hangs.

Any simple answers?
