Sigh... after a few attempts (between other projects) to get this thing (RRUbuntu-v1.13.iso) onto a thumbdrive and then boot, I think I need to just give up and get my hands on a DVD/R disc. :(

I tried "dd for windows" and another Windows utility (PowerISO), both with no success.

"dd" appears to put the data onto the USB drive, but when an attempt is made to boot, the system doesn't "see" anything on it when it's set to boot from USB. (BIOS recognizes that a USB device is present, tho.)

The drive appears as "healthy" in the Windows Disk Manager, but with no partition, and the drive seems "empty". It does NOT appear in Windows Explorer.

The "PowerISO" utility needs for Windows to "see" the USB drive, so I formatted it as FAT32. Everything is visible in Windows Explorer after PowerISO finishes.

Trying to boot THAT results in "NTLDR missing"... so although BIOS "sees something", it's still not workable. :(

Again, this is a LOW PRIORITY experiment, with a $0.00 budget. ;)
