I dont think you could boot off a usb stick with Ubuntu because the usb drivers have not loaded so the system cannot read the boot files.

Failiure is not an option... it comes bundled with Windows.

dbzkid, I would recommend that you take a look at this. It will tell you how to put the iso on the flash drive and make everything work correctly.

I thought you were a hispanic/african american? Who is the white guy in the pictures?
