Ubuntu – How to avoid ‘Installation Failed’ error when creating a Start Up Disk


I want to create a Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD. So I open Startup Disk Creator in the Ubuntu Dash. I go through all of the settings, and then click 'Make Startup Disk'.

Make Startup Disk

Almost immediately I get a window that only says 'Installation Failed'.

Installation Failed

I tried it again, and got the same result. I even downloaded a new copy of the .ISO file from the Ubuntu website. Sadly, the same thing happened.

How may I avoid this issue? Thanks in advance!

Try formatting the USB stick with a FAT32 filesystem and try again. That should do the trick.
