    Default bt4-final.iso won't boot from USB stick

    Hey everyone, I'm new to BackTrack and I burned the iso onto a USB using unetbootin and when i try to boot from the usb, it just hangs at the black screen with a blinking underscore. Any help would be appriciated.

    the usb is an HP v125w 2gb (also tried on a SanDisk cruzer 8gb (which has worked before with other isos, still does the same thing))

    when unetbootin was downloading the iso, it got interupted, so i used the same link it was getting the iso from and downloaded it thru google chrome.

    I did an md5 check to see if it was corrupt, and it wasn't. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.

    Have you formatted you USB drive before using unetbootin?

    Try again, and also might want to check on the HCL section here to see if your hardware (which you did not specify) is compatible.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
