    I had to boot my XPS-13 9343 from USB stick ... It was simple. Created the bootable USB using unetbootin. Then booted to BIOS, put it in legacy boot mode, move USB to the top of the boot order list. Insert USB stick and let it boot.

    We all learned a lesson. My wife says I'm stubborn, I say I'm determined. Huge difference.

    Very glad it worked. A special thanks to Bree who got us looking in a different direction.
