Bootmgr is missing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I know what you're thinking. Grab your Windows 7 CD and repair. No. That's not the case here.

I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit last night. I made a LiveUSB with unetbootin. I restart the computer and select my USB to boot off of. And I get

Bootmgr is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart
I've retried making a LiveUSB 3 times with unetbootin and I keep getting the same error. I did some searching, but the only things that I find are noobs that install Linux and they get that message from Windows.

I found this thread,

But it wasn't really too helpful.
Anyone know a way to get around this little issue?

How big is the USB stick and is it formatted FAT or FAT32? I think it should be formatted FAT.

It's FAT32.
And use this to create the USB a boot drive. I've used it at least 3 times.

8GB's. So I'm assuming it's formatted to NTFS.
I have never had a problem with installing BT4 & Ubuntu 9.04.
But then again, I never payed attention to what it was formatted to.
I doubt it will format to FAT since it's over 4GB's. I guess I'll have to test with FAT32.

I always use unetbootin. Seems to never have failed me. If it does, then I use LiveUSB Creator which I believe is for Fedora. But works for other distros. If what I said above fails, I'll try that.

If it's over 2Gb it has to be FAT32

Check the md5sum against the source where you downloaded it.

So using FAT32 seems to have fixed that problem...
But now another problem I'm having.

"No init found. Try passing init= bootarg"
And then gives me to a SSH terminal.
Not really understanding what's happening...
This isn't the first time I've made a LiveUSB before, I don't see why I'm getting such errors.

Googling this problem only gives me results of people that already have Ubuntu installed.

Any suggestions? I might just need to check the checksum. I'm pretty sure it's good though.

TFB. Checked the md5sum and it checks out okay.
Now I'm still having the problem of "No init found. Try passing init= bootarg"
I might just append that to the end when booting from the USB
