Ubuntu – There is no boot sector in usb


I had downloaded the Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop Iso file and used the USB installer provided at pendrivelinux.com to boot from the USB device. I cannot install Ubuntu from windows as I am having some network issues in connecting from windows.

When the system is restarted using the USB Device as the primary boot option, I am able to use the " Try the Ubuntu" option. But when I click Install Ubuntu, it selects the available network and restarts.

It just shows me the error " There is no boot sector in USB " and logins into the windows screen.

Please help me in solving this issue.

  • Welcome to askubuntu Arun ! try Unetbootin to make pendrive bootable. You have to just provide .iso path, doesn't affect you choose distro and version or not.
