Ubuntu – Machine check error while booting from USB

boot failurelive-usb

I put the last Ubuntu iso on my USB stick using UNetBootin, after formatting it to fat32. I've already done that before with other operating systems and it worked. I can't actually boot Ubuntu from USB since I get a black screen with the error "Machine check error" on top the an automatic reboot happens. The error appears right after the boot, I can't see anything else before.

I'm using my ASUS K53SV latop. Does anybody know how to solve this?

More a workaround than a solution, but since I couldn't solve the problem with the USB stick, I was finally able to boot from a CD, that's how I installed Ubuntu on my Laptop.
