Well first format the usb flash.
Extract iso files to usb flash.
Then install syslinux.

Remember first extract the iso and then install syslinux.

Thank you very much for your detailed explanations . I tried as you told me , but this time getting "Could not find kernel image:linux" . Actually , in step-2 , I tried to make use of Extract facility available in Windows but not the UNetbootin . Can you please let me know if this comes from this step or not ?
Thank you in advance

Do not use Unetbootin for the distributions that are not listed there. May not always be successful.
Extract the iso in your usb. If there is a file called isolinux.cfg then rename it to syslinux.cfg.
Then install syslinux.
