    Question UNetbootin keeps getting stuck at 39% on

    Windows 7 Starter (x86)
    unetbootin-windows-563
    BT5-KDE-32


    Initially I had been trying to install R1 but reading 'use the backtrack-final ISO' from BackTrack Live USB Install I downloaded BT5-KDE-32 instead but had the exact same problem.

    The flash drive is 2GB capacity as per instruction, although I notice when formatted within Windows to FAT32 it's capacity is listed as 1.83GB, is this taken into account on the recommendation of 2GB or perhaps that's the problem? Notably, I notice elsewhere on the side 4GB is recommended for a USB Live install.

    Pauses on casper/filesystem.squashfs which looks like a large file so it's probably a capacity issue.

    Thanks for the link.

    Seems the same as the initial guide apart from the increased recommended flash drive capacity.

    I managed to get it to install but had to wait 15 or so minutes while it appeared to hang at 39%.

    I will look into Persistent USB.

    Wait it out or try a larger USB. Some files take long to unpack, happens to me all the time.

    you need more than 2gb, you have to figure a 2gb drive doesn't even have 2GB usable and the iso file needs to get extracted which takes up a little more than the size of the actual ISO once extracted

    use LinuxLive USB Creator..I too had the same problem but using this software solved my problem..just dont run it persistence mode and do check the 3rd box of option 4. and thats that.Oh yeah, use at minimum a 4GB flash drive formatted in FATt32..Now Im running Backtrack directly from my HDD..Hope this helps.
