    Can't boot Samsung N150 from USB [SOLVED]

    Hi,

    I just bought a Samsung N150 but I can't get it to boot from USBkey.

    I made a bootable image from the XFCE4 spin and tested it on my desktop machine. The media check passed and it booted fine.

    If I put it in the laptop and config the bios to boot from it ( it explicitly lists the Lexar device ) and I disabled all other boot devices: ie hard disk.

    I does not seem to see the USB when I save and reboot and since I have disabled the internal hard drive it show "no OS found". There seem to be plenty of folks who have been installing on this laptop so I can't figure out what is wrong.

    Anyone have any suggestions what to try ?

    TIA.

    try a different brand of USB thumb drive, maybe the samsung doesn't read the Lexar properly even though it lists it.

    Thanks, that did the trick. Not sure why it did not like the Lexar.
