    If it helps, some way down the link I posted earlier was this...

    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.

    Interesting. This person seems to have a play by play. Wants computer off when you plug in key. Anyway you can read and just skip pieces you don't need.

    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.

    Yes again thanks all I didn't want to give up either
    Today I had trouble with macrium reflect image software because I had an image of my system from 5 days ago
    It didn't want to work
    I could t get it to work thru the network so I had to copy image to an external and bingo I'm back to business
