    System76 Galaga pro - no usb boot?

    My brand new laptop froze during update.

    got an Ubuntu recovery usb stick from Amazon.

    System76 support says no problem.

    Press the ESC key on splash screen and use Boot one time.

    the menu that open has 4 options none of them use the usb.

    please help.

    Wasted money.

    You can use any USB stick of at least 4GB and make your own.
    We don't know exactly what you have and even if it's capable of booting in the mode you need.

    How old is your computer? This is to determine whether it has BIOS or UEFI. Only more recent System76 computer use an actual UEFI unlike the rest of the industry where UEFI is the standard for almost a decade.

    It was manufactured in March of this year.

    system76 says it must be a bad usb stick.

    the only computer I can use is the library’s so I have to buy one already created on Amazon.

    The public library computer shows a fully functional usb stick.
