My HDD died due to short circuit. Not willing to spend money on new HDD as planning to buy lappy and giving my Desktop to cousin. I have linuxmint-16-cinnamon-dvd-32bit ISO image, LinuxLive USB Creator 2.8.30., 8Gb 2.0 Flash drive. Do i need any other tools or anything else. How to use this to make live flash containing linux. Any suggestions please. Does linux support 1080p playback.

The install disk is the live distro for most of them. And yes, Linux supports 1080p, but it depends on what media player it comes with already and if it has the appropriate codec (if you were just planning to run it purely live)

Did you remember to set the USB Flash to primary boot drive in BIOS Menu?

Is this an EFI BIOS? Was the original OS Win8?

Did you try your HDD in another PC to make sure it really is the problem?

We really need the exact error message AND code. Since there are no Google hits with it I assume it is not correct.

If you have an ODD, burn a DVD and try that.
