    Boot from Pen without success


    Hi guys,

    Trying to boot from a pendrive connected to usb3.0 port with a linux iso image to instal it side by side with win 10 without success on my old asus n82jv with win10.

    I just select boot from pen but it boots win10 as normal...not from pen.

    Any help very appreciate

    How did you create your Pen. Did you use Media Creation Tool. To boot UEFI it must be formatted FAT32.

    Ken

    Recommend using MCT to create.

    Yeah....that's not how that works....LOL. You didn't know. Once the ISO is downloaded you have to create a bootable device.....ie DVD or USB drive. I find Rufus to be the best option hands down for the USB option.

    You can mount the ISO image directly....this bypass's the need to create a bootable device. Just right click on the ISO and select mount, it virtually mounts the ISO so you can install the OS. Once the install is done and your all boot back up to windows open up file explorer and the right click the ISO that is mounted and right click on unmount it.
