Apparently my installation of syslinux was incorrect and liveusb-creator installs it somewhat correctly. Now I am getting the error "chain.c32: not a COM32R image".How do I make a USB flash drive bootstrap like a CD? My BIOS is configured okay (Ubuntu boots from USB).
The problem is, I have an ISO image and if a burn it to CD it boots fine. When I "burn" it to the flash drive, it doesn't boot.
I am guessing the CD burner creates a sort of a boot sector automatically, which isn't done for the USB drive. Please do not refer me to Linux/Ubuntu bootable installers from USB, I am not asking to boot Linux. It's an arbitary bootable ISO image.
The ISO contains an
isolinux directory, inside is some stuff like
.krn file etc. Ring any bells? I am not familiar with this isolinux bootloading thing.
Can someone please explain how I can use these files? Do I need to reinstall syslinux on the USB?

The problem was with syslinux installation on USB (syslinux is a lightweight bootloader). I've tried installing it from Linux terminal, didn't work.
Unetbootin worked for me in the end. Installed syslinux correctly, tho I had to use an older version 494. The new version produced an error: "menu.c32: not a COM32R image".
