Boot from USB – How to Boot from USB on Laptop

Boot failure : No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!

I have similar issues but none with the 12.04 build.

Im trying this on a dell d610 laptop with a bad hard drive and was told i could just directly boot from the usb drive.

Im using an 8g usb drive and i have tried using the uui tool and get this message.
SYSLINUX 4.06 EDD 4.06-pre1 Copyright (c) 1994-2011 H.Peter Anvinet al
ERROR: No configuration file found
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!

Then i tried using unetbootin and got the bootup screen with only the default option and it would say auto boot with a 10 sec countdown and start over again.

I do have the boot sequence for usb first.

On the USB key, rename the isolinux folder to syslinux.

In the same folder, rename the isolinux.bin and isolinux.cfg files to syslinux.bin and syslinux.cfg, respectively.

Now, try booting with the USB drive again.
