    Install ISO from USB.. Boot Error?

    I'm trying to install the 8.10 ISO from my USB drive using the following program (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/) and am getting a boot error?

    Does anyone have some instructions for setting up a USB drive for installing from an ISO or can give some help with the current process?

    Thanks for any help.

    TW,

    If you already have access to a computer that is running Ubuntu 8.10, and you have an ubuntu 8.10 iso file and a spare usb flash drive, then simply run this program:

    System --> Administration --> Create a USB startup disk

    And it'll do all the work for you.
    Work smart, not hard.

    I don't have that option?

    Will it matter if the original OS is 32 bit and I'm installing 64 bit?

    Well I too struggled through the problem for weeks...Tried all available Bootable USB Linux software, but no good. Googled all the forums...no solution...

    Here is what worked for me...

    Prob: When I created Live Usb and restart my pc with all bios settings done right I get a "Boot Error" ...thats it...No number...

    Solution: The problem is not in Ubuntu or Live USB creator softwares...the problem is in ur bios settings...

    go to Bios Boot Menu...
    Search for ' USB Mass Storage Emulation type'
    Default:<Auto>
    Change it to:<All Fixed Disc>
    or something similar

    This was the Bios of Intel DP35DP MainBoard with P35 Chipset...
    Right Now i am working from a USB Ubuntu !!!...
