    Mythbuntu 12.04.2 64-bit ISO not compatible with USB Flash drives??

    I tried 2 different ISO to USB programs and both produced a FAILED bootable USB Flash Drive.
    http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
    http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/

    Neither program produced a USB Flash drive that successfully booted into the Mythbuntu installer.
    I tried a 4GB Flash drive with unetbootin and a 1GB Flash drive with the Universal USB Installer.

    I checked the MD5SUMS code to be sure the ISO was not corrupt. The code matched.
    1065b482382203d367cf7ce1c69b7c51 (for mythbuntu-12.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso)

    The flash drive made with unetbootin booted to a menu of boot choices and none of them would boot the machine. Some just sat with a blinking cursor and others just gave an error and restarted the menu.
    The flash drive made with Universal USB Installer, started booting to a maroon Mythbuntu splash screen and then stopped with an error message.

    Is anyone else seeing this problem?
    I can take screen photos, if it will help troubleshoot.

    I just got the Universal USB Installer (Pendrivelinux) to create a working bootable USB Flash drive!
    I remade the USB flash drive and it worked this time. I'm not sure why it didn't work the first time.
    I wonder if I "fat-fingered" the distro choice box when I made the first one?

    Bottom line: Universal USB Installer (Pendrivelinux) does work!

    I'm not sure what the deal with unetbootin is.
    I made sure I had the latest version, tried it again and it failed to make a bootable Mythbuntu installer, again.
    It doesn't matter what menu choice you pick. It fails.


    Unetbootin doesn't have a distro choice for Mythbuntu so you have to choose a generic Ubuntu.
    The settings for the generic Ubuntu choice must not be close enough to work?
