Process freeze on extraction

Asked by Doug Sherman on 2011-12-20

I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 and responded 'Yes to all' when prompted that a file already exists (don't recall the name of the file) and did I want to overwrite it. Seeing as that I was writing onto a new USB drive I figured that it couldn't hurt to hit 'yes to all' UNetbootin began to extract files but froze after two files. Is there anyway to continue extracting files without downloading the files again? I'm using an old IBM Laptop with Windows XP.

Search the ISO file on your PC, and after do a checksum: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM
Sorry, I don't know where Unetbootin store the ISO file. You could search in folder of temporary data.
Next time, you could:
1-download the ISO file on your PC
2-do a checksum
3-ask Unetbootin to use this ISO file
4-install on USB key

Thanks for the checksum info. Turns out I didn't wait long enough. I re-downloaded. For some reason this time I wasn't queried about over-writing files. The extraction seemed to hang at 10 files but I just went and did other stuff for about 20 minutes, came back and it was done. It might be because the Laptop I'm using has older, slower USB ports.

Thanks again though for the suggestion.
