Are there any other error messages? Which Windows version are you using?

Seems to be some incompatibility with your hardware.

Talking unetbootin

morning the actual error message reads error 13 ;invalid or unsupported executable format. but you could be right about a hardware problem.I have discussed it with an it tutor and apparently i actually may have 2 graphics cards running. as i was not happy with the onboard card aradeon 200 so i have added the nvidia card but while it runs on the nvidia card i neglected to disable the graphics card. my tutor is coming over when she gets some free time to sort this out for me and she will try the install for me then but may have to go for the smart boot manager option. thanks for your help.

I'm having the same problem and I know it's not hardware because I have installed ubuntu with Unetbootin before. I had debian on this laptop and was having too many problems with it so I wanted to install Xubuntu with Unetbootin only I didn't select the Xubuntu desktop (I thought I did but didn't hit the right button to select the option) and had to add the desktop later. I don't like the way it's setup so I wanted to do it again the right way and now it don't want to boot this time. I know no one is going to answer this thread in time so I'm just going to install debian again and try unetbootin again... hate doing things the hard way but at least it worked the last time! So anyway, I don't think your hardware has anything to do with it but who knows...
