I want to make a bootable pendrive to install SL 7, so I downloaded SL-72-x86_64-2016-02-03-LiveCD.iso, then I used UNetbootin to create the bootable pendrive, I restarted and the bootable pendrive was recognised, BUT then it says there is a boot error, it doesnot explain which one. What am I doning wrong?

Hello! Try using liveusbcreator I've had problems in the past with making bootable usb stick with unetbootin with fedora/SL. With liveusb creator I haven't had any problems creating a bootable usb stick for fedora/SL.

You may need to have formated the USB flashdrive as <edit> FAT32 </edit> filesystem first.
