Hello,

I am having trouble with booting from usb.

My pc sees the usb drive and boots from it but then it fails to load the operating system.

I've tried "slax linux", "parted magic", "puppy linux" but all fail to load. I tried my usb stick with different computers and it worked flawlessly.

I've enabled "usb legacy" , disabled "secure boot" and "UEFI" but still cant load the operating systems.

Also i tried both usb 3.0 and usb 2.0 ports and still not working

Anyone knows why?

If the stick is OK the only other common denominator would be the boot software if it's failing to hand over to the OS. Did you use Rufus to create the bootable drive? If not, try it - it's free and hasn't failed me once so far.

thnx but i don't think the problem is in the software. Maybe it is deep in the bios. since it boots from the usb but then i guess somehow it forgets the usb and OS cant be loaded to RAM or any other place.... and i don't know why i'll write my bios specs here in a few...

you have to disable something in your BIOS if youre trying to install linux , something like secuRom ? safe boot .. UEFI , legacy those are the options you have to tweak with

it actually varies from asus to msi to gigabyte , also your motherboard's model and generation .. but those are the parameters you have to tweak with in the BIOS settings
