I used unetbootin 408, with my iso previously downloaded by torrent. No problems.
I'm sorry for my english !
Installed using a 1gb Sony flash drive onto a Dell Inspiron 2200, and my desktop, without issues. I also tried to install it to a Gateway Solo 1450, using PLoP boot manager to boot from USB, but was unable to get it to work. This had nothing to do with Unetbootin, though - it just had a really crappy video card.
Sorry I can't provide the Unetbootin version. I don't have the will to reboot into Ubuntu to check ;D
I have a knack for asking dumb questions. Please don't hold it against me - by day I repair Windows machines, I think it's affected my IQ.
For Commodore ROM's, games, or emulator help, feel free to PM me. Also, I have the coveted CD that allows a Thinkpad to use other MiniPCI cards. ;D
I used UNetbootin 471 Windows version for both #!9(latest stable) & 10(alpha2).
Used 32bit for both,
i686 Xfce for #!10 alpha2.
Also tried Debian Squeeze with same UNetbootin
On a Dell Inspiron 1564 laptop new this year. i3CPU, Intel graphics chip. Used a 2GB USB
All of them loaded onto the USB and ran using Default or Live boot mode, I did not install to HD
Both the new Alpha2s, #!10 and Deb Squeeze looked very nice on my widescreen.
#!9 which I am typing on now has a stretched graphic result on this 1366x768 display.
I do not know how to fix that after loading the OS either.
#!10 and Deb Squeeze both had perfect graphics.
Only #!9&10 got online, and that was only briefly. This has the b43 wireless driver requirement.
Same thing happens with live Ubuntu. I also have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS installed on a partition. With an install I can upgrade the driver with b43 firmware, change to PIO mode and turn off QOS then reboot and then the wireless connect lasts, but not if live. So broadcom drivers in #! would not be a problem on an install. I heard broadcom drivers are soon to be integrated into the kernel.
Deb Squeeze did not have wireless access, ever.
I liked the #!10a2 Xfce version, however, I opened IceWeasel to get online and come here, then the whole system froze. I shutdown with the power button. Before freezing up, it ran for maybe 5 minutes. It didn't go long enough for the wireless driver to cut me off the internet they way it always did with other Ubuntu based distros. If something new was done in your #!10 build in which the internet disruption expanded into a complete freeze up, that would be important to find out. The wireless issue on other distros for b43 has never caused freeze ups so I assumed it's other things, but I have no clue what you are doing with coding. Both #!9 and Debian Squeeze ran with no total freeze up.
Hope that helps, I'd like to try it again later maybe
I wonder if an iso burned to CD would be any different?
(posted later from another OS)
I used unetbootin from Ubuntu 10.04 to create three separate Statler images. All installed successfully. I've also used the same version in Statler to create a working 10.10 Meerkat and Debian Squeeze Live USB.
Destroying the Earth one electron at a time.
I could never get it to install from any usb install until I tried the very latest and greatest unetbootin. Version unetbootin-linux-490 (http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetb … nux-latest). I used it to install to an old Dell inspiron 2650 which I couldn't even install with a good CD! It went super smooth. Previously with the dd method or unetbootin, I'd get stuck with the missing CD hassle. This went off without a hitch though.
After install, there were some problems - the cb-welcome script being a dud and it looks like the repository is pretty scarce. But those appear to be fixable. I'm just happy to get the install working.
By the way, this laptop does NOT have an install from usb option. I used the AWESOME plop (http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager.html) boot manager loaded onto a floppy of all things. It's great at taking old geezers like this and allowing them to boot from usb. It's usb1.1, so it's slow. But it totally works!
So the latest unetbootin did work for me - for the first time. Awesome

Hello. (Long time no see...I'm back from a trip to Windows 7 land. )
Used Unetbootin version 494 for windows to put Statler Openbox on my cheap, crappy hp flashdrive. I then installed on a Toshiba NB305.
Installation seems to have gone fine with just a couple errors.
my username was not added to sudoers
sources.list was a mess. The right repositories just weren't listed, etc.
my keyboard/language selection didn't take on the install.
These errors might be unrelated to unetbootin for all I know. The error in sources may be because I didn't configure my network at the time of install. In any event, they were easy to fix.
500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/main i386 Packages
GParted 4GB stick to fat32, mounted, unetbootin xfce statler A2, with wired 'net.
cb-welcome script did the updates
keyboard layout[used workaround from known issues]
