Unetbootin, my maiden voyage ;)

I can send it to you, but it is for my system specifically, built up over the years and it's raw of course. Some things still need some adjusting to the most recent situation as I do them differently but have done them SO often that it's autopilot now ;)

If you weed out personal info and just cherry pick what you can use, that should work. Can you PM me your email address, .doc is not allowed to be attached.

Your linuxfs is showing failed. Is it because, perhaps, that you unmount/remove the stick before it has finished (Unetbootin may say it has finished, but there may still be some activity going on (some transfer delay)

Not in this case as I did not unmount/remove the stick.

This was one of those failures when I used mkfs instead of gparted. Gparted has been more reliable for me.

Always eject a USB drive as it makes sure everything is written that should be written. I always use Fat32 and either Unetbootin or Rufus and I have zero issues...

Question of curiosity. Did you format as fat32, or ext4. (default in gparted,I think)
Seems as though all of the ext4 formatting I have been able to use were almost as fast
as some of my older/smaller HD's.


Does OS X read ext4? Does Windows(belch) read ext4? NO. Does all three read fat32? YES.
Please read our section on USB thumb drives and then install pages. :popcorn:


You missed the point entirely. The question was about the linux iso on a USB with Unetbootin. I am fully aware of the OS X & Windows scenerio. My point was to convey a much improved performance of live usb formatted with ext4! AND , yes I RTFineManual.

Words have meaning. knowledge is a important factor. To know a person has used something,
to the letter, for the first time and work for them is wonderful. We teach people here at
this forum to use their computers, sure you can joke around or whatever, breaks the ice
at times. Yes words have meaning and knowledge is a important factor.

Did not miss the point entirely, was not to the letter as given for your first try,
was it. If you would like to talk about ext4 and the things one can do with it, fire away
it, ether myself or someone will help or try to answer your question. My grandma would
say that I should be more careful, curiosity killed the cat. :popcorn:

I always eject a usb drive.. I cringe when people remove that thing without first doing the safely remove (most use windows). Same with the sdcards, always eject. Same cringe on other people.

That is the thing, it is easy to do so, to remove those usb and sdcard drives, where with a dvd you have to press the button to get it out of the drive and thus is gets "ejected" automatically (unless you need to use a paperclip, but no one does that unless it's stuck).
