I tried to make a bootable flash drive for ubunto 14.04 with the glide. I used Ubuntu from a previous sandisk bootable drive to boot a Latitude E6410 with Ubuntu 14.04 and run gparted to put 4 partitions on the the new drive. It ran for literally 3 days before I stopped it. It did not take that long the first time I made a drive. Any suggestions on what to try to do this?
ntfs!!! For 4 Linux partitions!! Why??! Use ext4 or even FAT32 for your partitions but certainly not ntfs.
Try using Power ISO for a bootable flash drive and see how this works for you.
