    You might want to use MD5 to check downloaded ISO, then re-do the USB install with unebootin.

    Some problems have been arisen with USB 3.0 acconrding to some posts, so you might want to use a USB 2.0 unit, just in case.

    Also is highly recommended to burn DVD and use it.

    Please, refer to the wiki if any doubt as far as "USB Installation": http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

    Section : Getting Started" ----> "Installing Backtrack"

    Hope it helps.

    How did you create the bootable USB device?
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
