Try to first save the .iso and then use dd to write the image to a USB stick.

To install, first ensure the USB device is unmounted and then issue the following command:

Code:
 $ dd if=image.iso of=/dev/sd[x]
where ''image.iso'' is the path to the iso file and ''/dev/sd[x]'' is your USB device.
A small caution.

Did you download the ISO or the Zip file?
