I have had more trouble than luck with unetbootin with recent years. Try another tool that has better support for UEFI boot, which most distros use now.
Tried it laptop never saw boot usb. Then i noticed Unet site never mentions Win 8 and i knew why. Universal USB works for me.
used to work well in the past, nowadays.. it pretty much doesn't work at all, if you use this software to create a bootable usb, it'll pretty much fail at booting 100% of the times
i think it is great incase you lose your cd to which you are trying to install
I'm always having problems with UNetbootin. I do recommend MultiBootUSB or Rufus.
Easy to install almost any distros from local and from the internet
Broken under macOS Catalina. No fix in sight (yet) and equivalent tools don't work either under said OS or don't write Windows ISO images to USB. In other words, stay away until there's a fix.
Doesn't work with some distros. Works better with some other.
Installing to HDD instead of USB, overwrote Winodws BCD had to add a testdisk MBR to recovery my drive
Because it has the option to download ISO's for the program it self.
Does the job, and literally so easy my grandmother can use it. YMMV on the grandmother, though. Mine's just very good at technology.
Rufus didn't make it for me. I kept having "Loading operating system", but UNetbootin worked straight
Does not work well with Windows 10
Have issues on autorun.inf when install more than one distributions, Uninstaller Not Supported
