    The first thing I would check for is a badly created USB version of BT4. Try recreating, and make sure you are following the instructions appropriately.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    Hi lupin,

    You are right ! The USB was badly created.

    My problem is that I had downloaded the BT4 iso and burnt into DVD and the DVD works fine. However, when I tried to create the USB with unetbootin the file extraction stopped at file 12 of 14.

    I even redownloaded unetbootin and still the problem remains.

    I need help

    Check the MD5 hash of the BT4 image. If thats OK the problem is likely with unetbootin and you may want to check with them for support info.
