View Full Version : [SOLVED] USB Boot Error

January 25th, 2015, 10:33 PM
Hello -

I have an old Dell Dimension e520 onto which I want to install Ubuntu.
I am using a USB flashdrive that has been configured using unetbootin.
When I set the computer to boot from the device, it says "Boot error"
I found several articles that solved the issue by changing the USB Mass Storage Emulation type.
However, after searching the BIOS I could find no such option.

What am I missing? Is the computer just too outdated (It's from like 2006)?

If more info is needed, just tell me. This is my first post on these forums :)


EDIT: The computer has an "updated" graphics card, the Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT. I don't know if that's useful info, but I'll say it anyway.

Hmm, problem solved. I just used Linux Live USB Creator instead of unetbootin and it worked fine!

Weird. Oh well, I hope I can save someone else some time in the future :)
