View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trouble booting from flash drive.

June 18th, 2011, 05:50 AM
I have installed Ubuntu on a previous computer, but the manufacturer was Dell and so it had a different, and in my opinion better, boot menu. This time around I am trying to install Ubuntu on my Asus laptop and am having much difficulty booting from my USB stick. I can go into my boot menu and change the priority, but I can't simply boot then and there.

this is a prity generic list of possabilitys, but are you saving the bios after changing it?
also try another port,
or check whether there is a option to boot from a device (without changing the order in the bios and use it.
finally, try a new usb, and/or install the OS to the drive with unetbootin.

hope one of the above helps.
