USB drive shows up as Removable.

Postby gibsonlpsb on Thu Mar 14, 2013 9:34 pm

On my old computer im simply trying to install Linux from a Flash Drive. However, upon entering the BIOS, searching for hours and pulling my hair out, I finally came to the conclusion that my BIOS dont list the drive as a HDD. It lists it as a Removable device. My BIOS are just too old, even with a flashing of the latest version are still unable to handle running Linux from a flash drive. Just a heads up to anyone who wants to install Linux on a moderately old computer. A solution would be to just burn it to a CD-R >.<
