    Question [HELP] Installing BackTrack from USB: Boot Error

    Hi everyone!

    Let me tell you from the beginning.

    First I have some troubles to do a dual boot (Windows 7 + Ubuntu) on my PC, because of the UEFI.
    Following some tips to solve that, I used Live GParted to make 4 partitions on my Dell Inspiron 14R:
    - One for Ubuntu (100 GB)
    - One for BackTrack (20 GB)
    - One for Windows 7 (I need this junk just for games) (100 GB)
    - One for all my data (~800 GB)

    Then I disable secure boot and install sucessfully Windows 7 and Ubuntu using a pendrive.

    Then, I tried to install BackTrack 5, but I have some troubles to do that.
    I used 2 softwares to make USB boot disks (is that the correct name?):
    - TuxBoot (I used it to create the Ubuntu USB installer successfully); and
    - Universal USB Installer (for Windows)

    Everytime I tried to boot with the pendrive, I got a black screen and the message: "Boot Error".

    Following these steps, I tried to install BackTrack 5 R1 32 bits and BackTrack 5 R3 64 bits and got the same message "Boot Error".

    I think this is weird because I follow the same steps that I used to install Ubuntu, and did not work!

    Can someone help me?

    Sorry for the poor english... This is not my native language

    Best Regards

    Have you tried the wiki for USB installs?..

    You might want to check MD5 of iso and make sure your USB is formatted to fat32..
