According to the documentation, startup disk creator will create Ubuntu startup disks. It seems to look for the Ubuntu tag in the disk type, and if you try to make a Debian disk, it will fail with that error message "Invalid version string 'GNU/LINUX'". This is the type for a Debian ISO, but not for Ubuntu.

My solution is to use UNetBootin, especially for non-Ubuntu disks.
