I have been trying to do a clean install of 13.10 but don't have dvd player so am trying to boot by USB.
USB isn't mentioned in bios but the motherboard manual says it is bootable by USB.
I have been trying to enter bios to look at the hard drive order to see if USB is included there (I read something along that line).
Earlier I had tried Plop but couldn't get it to work.
I had to repair Grub and I did a purge and reinstall of Grub.
Now it boots to a Grub menu.
I thought the bios key was part of firmware?
