That looks like a problem with your USB device.

Tried two different microSDHC 8GB devices each in a different USB adapter. Then tried a known good Patriot XT 8GB USB drive.  All exhibit the same behaviour.

Whats up???

did you check the SHA checksum of the iso you downloaded?

I was checking the shasum of yhe torrent when your last comment arrived. Yes, the torrent was corrupt in two places. I haven't seen this in quite a few years. Thanks.
