    Infinite boot loop when booting from USB


    Yeah, working with a Netbook here and wanting to try out another version of Linux then install it. Currently dual-booting Windows XP (Which I no longer use) and JoliOS (Which although runs alright on my crappy specs, lacks customisation and makes installing a lot of things even more difficult than I think should be.)

    In any case, no matter what program I use (Pendrivelinux, Unetbootin, Linux Live USB creator, etc) seems to make the USB just fine, shows up in Windows and all, but can't boot from it on the netbook in question. Baring in mind that to install the OS' above, I have done it in the past..so buggered if I know why it's not working now.

    It's an Acer Aspire One, already edited the boot options to boot from USB, hence the loop it gets into. Not really sure what I can do.
