FAIL UNetbootin allows for the installation of various Linux/BSD distribution

So here i am feeling like a loser after failing to install liquidfeedback on ubuntu and installing debian on a win 7 computer.

So taking a time out of one day and trying another google search MAY help

So i come across
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD.

WISH ME LUCK

so it failed and get an  .mbr error . so now i have a failed debian install and a failed ubootin install when i start  my comp

I had tried using the iso i had already downloaded.

This time i am going to use the netinstall . So in unetbootin i choose the distro debian and stable and clicked ok
it started to dowload initird.gz toc:\unetbtin\ubninit\ from  ftp.debian.org/debian/installer
maybe i had chosen the wrong distro and unetbootin is downloading the right ones

so the error message is


File: \ubnldr.mbr
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

Windows 7/Vista has a hidden boot partition, containing the BCD - boot configuration data. Similar to boot.ini but you can't easily edit it like you can with notepad and XP. You can also use the bcdedit tool.

Download EasyBCD and install it. EasyBCD is free for non-commercial use and offers a nice GUI to edit the Windows 7 boot loader menu.

P.S. There is no “boot.ini” in Windows 7. You could modify “boot.ini” in Windows XP to achieve the same result, but this does not apply for Windows 7.

I fixed on mine by logging in, running cmd as Administrator, and running

bcdedit /set device "partition=C:"



my try
bcdedit /set < 2a91d002-b502-11e0-83de-f0def176d226 > device "partition=C:"

error

Note that the id will be in the form of a GUID, in curly braces. To see what it is, just run bcdedit without any arguments.
