So i have Ubuntu installed in my system. I formatted the 8GB usb stick (mbr partition) created a FAT32 partition and copied contents of ISO.

After sometime i notice error in copying because install.wim is greater than 4 gb, Then too i booted from USB. The installer was working but it gave me(shoud give) an error.

So i formatted the drive again changed the filesystem to NTFS and now it is not booting.

To check that bootable USB is working correctly I booted it in my other system and it worked properly.

But not working in my current system(Lenovo yoga 500).

    You shouldn't simply copy the ISO file to the existing filesystem of the flash drive. You should overwrite the entire contents of the flash drive bit-by-bit with the contents of the ISO file. There are specialized utilities for doing so. Since you're on Ubuntu, I recommend dd. – hedgie May 23 at 22:54
