Ubuntu won't boot from USB stick
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 12, 2013
Hello I'm new to Linux, I cannot get Ubuntu to 'boot' from my Lexar usb stick.
I followed this video on the major parts, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilGBGLejvfM,
but he was on puppy OS so he did it differently.
I downloaded Ubuntu and then formatted my usb to FAT32 and partitioned it for Linux-swap 199mb using gparted.
I then extracted the Ubuntu .iso from the archive to the usb stick and then rebooted the computer
and pressed F10 to change boot order to the USB and it didn't work.
What did I do wrong? Also where can I learn how to use Lubuntu LXLE?
I'll include some screen shots of the usb in gparted and the usb installer.
**I'm trying to get Ubuntu on my usb because Lubuntu lxle isn't running 'right' on my Emachine W3107
for some reason or another. I'm guessing it's hardware related but I'm only speculating.
I'm hoping that Ubuntu will run a lot faster on my computer since it's only 900mb in size and Lubuntu LXLE is 1.3GB.
Computer specifications are:
Processor AMD Sempron
Ubuntu Won't Boot From USB Gigabyte MB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2013
So I finally built my first PC yesterday. Now that all the hardware aspects are done I switched to install 13.04 via USB. But it wouldn't list any of my USB devices in the boot menu. I decided to boot the beta of windows eight on my external hard drive which it did happily, displaying the device in the boot menu. I installed the 64bit version of 13.04 on the external drive but it once again won't see it. Then it hit me. UEFI.
One of my hard drives does have an older installation of ubuntu which does boot but I of course want a fresh installation of raring. I read that your supposed to disable quick/fast boot before attempting but there is no such option in the settings. How do I boot ubuntu from USB?

At each number I can use one of these 3 options or disabled.
No other options are mentioned.
Also mentioned is Boot from other device, this is set to yes, the other option is no.

ubuntu 10.04 boot from usb in safe graphics mode
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 30, 2010
Wanted to know how to enable boot in safe graphics mode in the bootable USB that I created for 10.04 by following the instructions in the download page.
Currently when I boot from USB and select installation, the monitor goes off. So I guess safe graphics mode is the way to go.
Ubuntu wont boot from usb on hpmini.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 25, 2010
Ive just recently bought a hp-mini 210-2013eo. I wanted to put ubuntu netbook remix on it so i went and downloadeed the iso aswell as the universal usb installer and put it on my usb thumbdrive. I rebooted my laptop and booted from the usb. There is a flashing white text at the top of the screen saying something about linux system, and then the screen goes black with a white blinking marker in the top left corner. Nothing more happens. I tried re-downloading the image and the usb installer. Didnt help. I tried booting the memstick in another computer and it worked like a charm. I downloaded the crunchbang iso, same procedure. Worked well on my other laptop, only a white marker on my mini. I hope someone can help me, because i am at a lost.
Thanks in advance,
Ubuntu will not boot from USB but Debian does
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 14, 2013
Edit: Problem fixed.
Here is what to take away from this.
1.Rufus will make an Ubuntu install USB drive in such a way that some systems will boot and some will not. usb-creator is more universal.
2.Freeze at Ubuntu boot menu and system restart means the usb-creator install did not go correctly. Reformat manually and try again being sure to enter your password carefully when it needs to write to the master boot record.
3.Random errors, especially drive related, on boot means that the drive is probably bad.
I have setup a USB flash drive for booting Ubuntu with the Windows tool, Rufus. I chose to format as FAT32 and MBR setup for BIOS and UEFI. This flash drive will not boot on a particular computer, but is working because a different computer will boot it. The computer that does not boot Ubuntu will boot a Debian USB installer. The Debian flash drive is setup in Linux with by using zcat to transfer the boot.img.gz and then copying the installer ISO over. I have eliminate
Laptop wont boot up the ubuntu install from USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2011
I recently bought my self a Acer aspire 5552G, and now I'm trying to get the latest Ubuntu on it, I put the ubuntu on a USB drive and inserted it to my laptop, I changed boot orders so that all USB devices would come first.
Now if I changed only one USB device to boot first(the one where my USB was inserter, as it indicated it had SanDisc in it) It didn't do anything, it still booted up the Linpus linux ditro wich was installed on the laptop when I got it, it has no GUI and I can't do anything with it.
If I changed all USB devices to the top list of booting, the laptop started and then a text comes on the screen :
SYSLINUX 4.03 2010-10-22 EDD Copyright (C) 1994-2010 H. Peter Anvin et al.
And now it just stays like that and no matter what I press, nothing happens.

Cannot Live Boot from USB on Ubuntu 14.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 28, 2014
I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my system replacing Windows 8.1 completely and even more recently upgraded that to 14.10.
I wanted to try some other Linux OSes through USB drives on my Ubuntu 14.10 machine, but it is not working. I have already changed boot device priority in my BIOS to prioritize my USB and also enabled Legacy USB as well as UEFI support(are they applicable?) but cannot make it work.
Also, my Ubuntu 14.10 shows a "Booting in insecure mode" message for about 2 seconds before starting to boot. I was skimming through the forum where I found that this was a known issue in Utopic machines with secure boot disabled. Could this be the problem?
Any help is much appreciated. Let me know if any additional info is required. Thanks!
moblin iso can be used to boot from USB drive, how about ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2009
Many cds were used to burn ubuntu iso for install new release.
Now moblin iso can be used to boot either from cd or from usb flash drive.
I hope to know how moblin can achieve this and how user can do to install other linux iso without cd burning.
