Yes I see what you mean...I just used unetbootin 563 on winxp to install the vl7std iso and get the same result, I think there is a vl-to usb option on the live cd but have not used it. hang tight someone may have a solution for you
cheers

I made these because of the problem with unetbootin on the install iso.
FWIW, unetbootin works just fine with the live iso.

This is the previous version.  Not sure what stopped working and why I updated.

Why unebootin?  Why not just burn to CD and install from that?

I usually use a rewritable cd myself ..but the netbook,  as example, does not have an optical drive unless you buy a portable usb drive, thus usb thumb install seems easier. although I can not speak for jaycee. It is becomming increasingly popular to install live cd iso to usb, many use persistence and can act as ones operating system and carried in your pocket. If you are one to frequent this method of running or testing linux it may follow you would seek to install via usb aswell. just a thought.
cheers
