First of all there are existing Q&A on this issue on different forums (mainly on AskUbuntu). But none of those solutions worked for me hence I am asking in a new thread here in SU.
I earlier had a dual boot system with
Linux Mint 16 and
Windows 7 home premium 64 bit (on my
Lenovo G570 machine). But few days back I wanted to use Ubuntu 12.04.03 instead due to LTS thing. My bad time started when I (like an ***) formatted the Linux partition using GParted live :(
Grub was lost hence I could not log-in to Windows. But after some hit and trial using
Ultimate Boot CD I could luckily fix the Windows boot (MBR). I could log-in directly now to Win7 instead of
Grub Rescue error. Now I created a live USB using Unetbootin (also tried with Rufus, etc. bootable usb creators) and Ubuntu 12.04.03 AMD64 iso.
When I tried booting from this USB Ubuntu logo came up and after some time it threw an error saying -
Unable to find live file system.
I checked if
Virtual Technology/AHCI is Enabled in BIOS. Yes it was. USB was plugged in 2.0 port.
Can anyone shed some light please?
