Is this a hardware compatibility issue, or a USB stick/creator issue ?

Have you tried the USB stick you just created with "dd" on another PC ?

and have you tried any other 14.04 based distro on this PC ?

tested on 2 computers, both had 14.04, booted to peppermintOS Menu just fine, but once I hit "Try Peppermint Live" both computers restarted
I have re-installed PeppermintOS 5 to the stick (bought off peppermintOS website) 3 different ways and still get same issue, won't boot to live edition

Hi RodneyLee how's it going?  Okay, I'll walk you through the dd method.  Be warned, you must follow the instructions to the letter - dd can also stand for DataDestroyer.  It is also advisable to umount and remove any unnecessary devices such as external hard drives.  It is best to have only the USB device you are going to dd attached to your machine.  It simply reduces the possibility of disasters.  This method will destroy any data you have on the usb device you are intending to use.  So BACKUP any data you have stored on it.  This will not only"Nuke 'n Pave" your USB, it will do it to anything you have attached if you are not meticulous!!  You have been advised.  ;)

Determine what device your USB is.  With your USB plugged in run:

Code: [Select]
sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*The output should look similar to this:
Code: [Select]
andy@AMILO-Li3710 ~ $ sudo ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  9 jul  7 13:05 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-Generic-_Multi-Card_20071114173400000-0:0 -> ../../sdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  9 jul  7 13:03 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-Lexar_USB_Flash_Drive_36A74627E624350908CC-0:0 -> ../../sdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 jul  7 13:03 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-Lexar_USB_Flash_Drive_36A74627E624350908CC-0:0-part1 -> ../../sdc1
andy@AMILO-Li3710 ~ $
In this example output, the USB device is sdc. 

Next is to unmount the partition  you are going use.  Using the example above as a reference, it would be entered into the command line as:
Code: [Select]
sudo umount /dev/sdc1Adjust yours accordingly.

Next is to change directory  to where you have your Peppermint.ISO saved. The most likely place will be:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/DownloadsOnce you have changed to the required directory, you can enter the following command into the command line.  You must substitute, "filename.iso" for the Peppermint ISO file name and "your-USB-device" for the USB being used.    Please Note this is the point of no return, so check everything thoroughly before hitting enter:
Code: [Select]
sudo dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/your-USB-device bs=1MFor example: lets say the iso is named rubberduck.iso and your USB device is sdb.  The command line entry would look like this:
Code: [Select]
sudo dd if=rubberduck.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M
NOTE - It is important there is NEVER a trailing number on the end of your /dev/sdx USB device.  If you are still unsure - ASK before you proceed.  I hope this helps.  Good luck  ;)!!

I bought the 32 bit USB install stick and it would not boot to the Live version, I downloaded again, loaded up the stick and tried to run a live session, still didn't work, tried on 2 different computers already with Ubuntu 14.04 on them, Nadda
