HI guys. New Linux user here. Trying to boot a distro from USB. Created it bootable and used win32 imager to save the iso. On boot up I get the et al text...however later after doing nothing I get failure to boot ldlinux.c32 error. What does this mean? Is it something in Bios settings? I am stuck.

It means the image wasn't written correctly. or something is missing.

 

 

Try using (if on windows ) PowerISO, Rufus.

 

If on linux, USB Image writer (included in some distro's ) Rufus. (im sure there are more but i've had success with those three.

 

but, yeah, just try re-writing the ISO with a different program. many people here have had luck with rufus.

 

 

Rufus:  https://rufus.akeo.ie/

PowerISO:  http://www.poweriso.com/download.php

thanks, yeah I originally used Rufus to prep the USB then used win32 imager. I just tried again with win32 to write the iso and it worked. I think win32 flaked out because I ran another process during the write. Also had power saver mode on in Windows. Thanks again
