why are you using an installation DVD to make an installation USB? if you
want to install, and the DVD is working, just use it to do your
installation.. you indicated you have plenty of them on a new spindle..
otherwise, check your machine that it is capable, and setup for USB boot..
take the USB that is not working to a machine that you know well and that
is capable of booting USB, and see that the USB is indeed working or not..
also, on a few personal notes...
1. i suggest getting 14.04 installed and leaving it alone.
2. i suggest that you return that ARM chromebook and either, buy *exactly*
what you want, which is a machine that runs linux, like an ubuntu machine
from system76 which would ship with ubuntu and run a distro like arch out
of the box and easily.. *or* get an intel based chromebook, which will run
a standard distro of linux. there are also simple projects such as crouton
which will allow you to basically add a full ubuntu distro (not limited to
ubuntu) on top of the currently installed chromeOS kernel..
there is no reason to make things so hard on yourself..
