    Exclamation backtrack 4 Live USB help!

    hi, recently i've updated my laptop and with that i have also update my backtrack to backtrack 4. i've loaded backtrack 4 to a USB stick and it is bootable. my bios is in boot order for a USB stick to be first.
    after i restart my laptop it starts to boot from the usb stick but nothing other than an underscore appears and the underscore just flashes.
    i loaded the iso image with linux live usb creator and the iso image works perfectly fine in virtual box i just need help with getting the iso image to boot from the usb.
    thanks in advance

    unetbootin did not work for me when i first tried

    if it does not work for you also you could try Universal-USB-Installer

    google it, Ubuntu uses it also for usb install

    the one i used is Universal-USB-Installer-v1.7.9.exe


    Cheers
