I downloaded the i686 ISO from http://jenkins.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso and used Startup Disc Creator in Belenos to create a bootable USB drive. I then rebooted and selected "Search ISOLINUX menu (USB)" from the libreboot GRUB menu, and got

error: syntax error.
error: Incorrect command.
error: syntax error.
Press any key to continue

I then did the exact same thing using the same USB drive with the Uruk beta ISO, and I was able to boot into Uruk with no problems, so I don't think it's a problem with libreboot or the USB drive. I then tried downloading the Flidas ISO again and starting over, and the same error occurred.

Any ideas as to what is going wrong? Thanks!

Instead of using the Startup Disc Creator, try doing the following:

Unmount all the partitions that come from the USB stick --- no need to
remove the USB stick itself.

Format the USB stick (this will of course delete things inside it),
making sure that it has only one partition occupying as much space as
possible.

Now, in a terminal do:

-------------------cut here---------------start------------------
sudo -i

# "/path/to/usb/partition" can be found by using `lsblk' and `blkid'.
# Example: dd bs="4M" if="trisquel.iso" of="/dev/sdb1" && sync
# Notice "sdb1" in the example, don't forget the number.
dd bs="4M" if="/path/to/image" of="/path/to/usb/partition" && sync

exit
-------------------cut here---------------end--------------------

Thanks, ADEFNO.

I actually manged to get it to work by using$ sudo dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M;sync instead of Startup Disc Creator. I meant to update this thread but forgot.
