    Cant get LinuxMint to boot (No DEFAULT or UI configuration)


    I'm trying to install LinuxMint from a USB-memory. (I have used this USB-memory before and it booted other linux-distros fine).

    The problem is that it wont boot like it should. I end up getting this message:

    Code:
    No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
    boot:
    So, I searched and tried to found a solution. I have tested formatting the USB-memory in both FAT32 and NTFS.
    I have redownload the ISO and the checksum is fine.
    I have tried making a bootable USB-stick with both Unetbootin and Universal USB installer. (I also let Universal USB installer format the stick)

    I have tried to rename:
    Code:
    isolinux > syslinux (folder)
    isolinux.bin > syslinux.bin
    isolinux.cfg > syslinux.cfg
    I have open:
    ./uui/syslinux.cfg
    and changed the paths from isolinux to syslinux.

    I ran this command:
    mboot.c32 -c boot.cfg
    But it didn't work.

    But I cant get it to boot. What would be the next step?

    hello and welcome, Erik!

    If you haven't already, try using a more recent version of Syslinux to install the bootloader to the USB disk, as discussed here. They also have their version of instructions on how to install syslinux to a USB disk.
