Hi fellow Lubuntu users,

Now that 14.10 'Utopic Unicorn' is released and has problems with the
Startup Disk Creator and Unetbootin, mkusb and Win32DiskImager can be
handy tools. Due to their different way to work, they are not affected
by the following bug.

There are problems with the Startup Disk Creator alias usb-creator and
Unetbootin, if you try to create a 14.10 boot drive from a previous
version of Ubuntu. See this link to the release notes



Until these problems are solved other tools work, for example mkusb in
linux and Win32DiskImager in Windows described in the following links

and (a brand new wiki page)

Best regards
