Ok so I have a Toshiba NB505-500 netbook that I am trying to install ANYTHING other than Puppy Linux onto but I can't seem to get it to work. I'm just trying to boot from USB, CD/DVD isn't an option here.

I have tried formatting in FAT and FAT32 neither of which work.

Using unetbootin I check the syslinux.cfg file and it looks ok then I try to boot the USB and I get to a boot error screen and when I check the syslinux.cfg file (using notepad++) afterwards it has been almost wiped but not really there are just a bunch of NULL symbols.

Using Universal USB Installer I do the same thing and I get a syslinux error No default Configuration or UI file found and again some of my stuff has been erased from the USB.

What is going on??
