USB sticks , check bootability of on command line.
I ran gparted on the stick,created a fat32 partition,gave it a label,put on a boot flag,
downloaded a distro,checked md5 sum, burnt a cd, ran md5sum on the cd,put it onto Unetbootin
and made some persistence(it WAS ubuntu based).No joy!
PS. The stick is a SanDisk cruzer blade. I think there is some kind of "windows" protection on it !
