When trying to boot Ubuntu 16.10 from USB stick, it fails to boot from following error
Missing parameter in configuration file. Keyword: path gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image boot :
This error had been reported since the Ubuntu versions 14.04. Discussion regarding this can be found here.
Therefore as a solution for this issue, I figured out following workaround.
- Whenever this error is getting thrown during startup, press the TAB key
- Choose among options like live, live-install etc ... I chose the live option.
- Next press enter.
This will take into the live OS and from thereon wards, Ubuntu 16.10, can be installed using USB stick.
