Bug Description

I sometimes saw this boot error when trying to boot off live USB made by Startup Disk Creator.

Make live usb with Ubuntu 10.04 Usb-Creator and check it on this one old comp witch bios pics i posted doesnt work in one 2005 year comp if bios settings "USB Mass Storage emulation type" set "Auto".
Changing to "All fixed Disc" or "Size" works

USB made with Multisystem Multiboot WORKS no matter whats the bios setting. Multisystem- see it at http://liveusb.info/
Made with usb-creator doesnt. Gets this error.
Instead USB should work.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures

At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).
Thanks!

"Doesn't work" is not a usable error description. What *does* happen when you try to boot from it?
