boot from disc

    boot from disc


    With Windows 1803 and a Dell XPS 8300 I tried to boot from a flash drive I created with USB universal Installer and the ISO - Mint.
    I could not get it to boot either by just tapping F 12 and selecting it as I usually do or changing the boot order in the BIOS.
    I tried another Port.
    I then tried Rufus(without persistence) and also Lilli.
    Do you have an idea what I am doing wrong while trying to boot to Mint?
    P.S. I removed the app that I allowed through the control folder system if that is what I should have done. I never used that before.

    Try the stick on another computer, if possible. Also, please confirm that you are pressing F12 and selecting "USB".

    Maybe "Secure BOOT" is enabled in BIOS ?

    >>I have since formatted that stick as I have the old BIOS and did see the drive when I clicked F 12. It just would not boot. I wonder if that new controlled folder access has anything to do with it.
    This my only PC.

    That can't be the reason as windows are not running at that time. Anyway, in F12 boot menu, are there maybe some other types of USB mentioned ? Like USB-FDD, USB-CD or USB-HDD, this last one should be used.

    the stick was actually identified as SanDisk

    I don't think that makes any difference, I have several and they do work fine.

    >>This time the new stick was recognized and all worked out fine. I can boot off of it and use the other OS (Zorin).

    Do you have an opinion about dual boot as the 32 GB stick is somewhat limited.
