Cannot install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx

Asked by Hawk on 2010-01-17

1. Downloaded Ubuntu Lucid Server I386.iso to a windows box.
2. Formatted a USB 8gig drive with FAT32.
3. Ran UNetbootin 377 and installed the ISO.
4. Fired up the computer, Pressed F10 to get to boot menu. Choose "Boot from USB".
5. Received error message "Boot error"
6. Kicked computer around a few times with size 9 boot. Still shows "Boot error".

Now what? Am I kicking it the wrong way?

This is for a kiosk project, so I need to use 10.0 because it is slated for LTS.

UNetbootin rocks! (when it's working!)

Thanks!

Thanks for the speedy reply to my problem. Oh. Wait. You didn't.

Anyway, problem was a bad .ISO download. Might want to add some error checking when loading images.
