    gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image

    Hello,

    I have problems with my HP t5630w (a thin client) when installing Lubuntu. When I boot the installer from my usb stick, it says this:

    SYSLINUX 4.07 EDD 2013-07-25 Copyright (C) 1994-2013 H. Peter Anvin et al
    Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path
    gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image
    boot:

    I searched on the internet about this problem, and they say you have to press TAB and then type live. But when I type live and press enter, it just restarts. Is this because it is not powerfull enough? These are the specs:

    VIA Eden 1,00Ghz
    1Gb RAM
    2Gb ATA flash storage
    And i'm using a 4gb usb stick

    Any help is welcome.

    I'm having the same problem when trying to install ubuntu server 14.10. I tried googling, and some people have suggested TAB --> select 'live'. all it tells me when i press tab is to check memtest. Can anyone explain this bug?

    There is a fix for the bug of the Startup Disk Creator in that thread (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1325801), and it will trickle down to installed systems, but not to already released iso file versions. I guess Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (the second point release) of the iso file will be OK, and so will the corresponding iso files for Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Gnome, Xubuntu ....

    The current Unetbootin works too. And there are installation tools, that were never affected by that bug, mkusb in linux and Win32 Disk Imager in Windows. See the following link (and links from it)

    When i create a bootable usb with win32 Disk Imager, it just bootloops. It restarts over and over again...
    Is this because the thin client is not powerfull enough?

    I don't know much about thin clients.

    Please describe with more details, and let us hope someone with more experience can chip in an help you.

    How do you make the thin client boot from the pendrive?

    Are you sure the thin client can boot from a pendrive?

    What distro did you try to install? From what iso file? Still Lubuntu or some other distro? 32-bits or 64-bits?

    Can you boot another computer from this pendrive?

    Did you install Lubuntu into the pendrive according to this link: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Win32DiskImager/iso2usb
