Bug Description

The new Startup Disk Creator works well to clone desktop iso files and also Ubuntu Server iso files, but it cannot clone (install) the Ubuntu mini.iso file, because it does not accept it as a source file.

There is probably some kind of logic, that checks if the source file is the correct kind of file, and this logic should accept also Ubuntu mini.iso.

Nowadays it is possible to clone the current mini.iso files to working USB boot drives with for example dd and mkusb, so it should be possible with the Startup Disk Creator too :-)
