comment Can't install OS with bootable USB — Reboot and select proper boot device
It worked! Even with a minor error regarding bootsect, it worked. I'm still unsure why the hell the common solution (for Linux & Mac OS X) didn't work.

comment Unable to Make Bootable USB Stick From ISO
I just had the exact same "surprise". However, if you follow Ahmed's answer below from the start, it should work as well and the error message isn't shown—I did it on my sister's computer. :)

comment Can't install OS with bootable USB — Reboot and select proper boot device
I'll get a friend's laptop with Windows to download and create a bootable USB. The strangest thing is that I used the exact same process (dd if=... of=...) successfully in several other occasions... :(

comment Can't boot flash drive on GIGABYTE motherboard
Hey jroz, can you post your answer with more details? When you say you used dd if=iso of=usb, did you really use the iso or is it a typo for the img file? Because in most tutorials I've seen, they use the img.
