    Unetbootin : installing syslinux failure


    Hello,

    I tried to create an USB boot configuration.
    However the step 3 - installing syslinus is failing, precisely never ending as stucked at 33% of completion.

    I formatted the USB to fat32 using GParted before using it.
    Looks ok.
    Maybe I needed additional dd operation on it ?

    The iso is the latest from SuperGrub2Disk.
    But I got same problem with other .ISO from the Unetbooting distros lists.

    Many thanks for your attention or clue.
    Bruno

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What distribution+version ISO are you trying to install? Some won't work with Unetbootin. Formatting to fat32 should not be the issue here. Was the ISO a Live CD/DVD image?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    As previously written :

    And yes the SuperGrub2Disk is LiveCD.

    I've had problems installing a live image with unetbootin before, and it was something with the thumb drive or flash card that I was using. Have you tried another (newer, different manufacturer, etc) thumb drive yet? Even though I have had some problems in the past, I have been able to install a live USB drive many, many times with unetbootin.
