Can't boot fom USB after installing Opensuse 12.3

Postby 3mutts on Sat Aug 10, 2013 11:49 am

Ok, I want to test out Elementary OS on my test desktop (a Dell Dimension E521), I know this can boot form a USB as I installed Opensuse from a USB and I tested the USB in my laptop and it booted just fine. I also know the USB ports are working because I can use my USB connected keyboard. Well, it looks like the BIOS is skipping the USB and booting to Opensuse (and I have it set to boot from the USB first). Is there anyway to fix this?

2 long shot thoughts occur to me:

1-
I also know the USB ports are working because I can use my USB connected keyboard.
You might want to double check that. Just because one is working doesn;t mean they all are. On the mobo I just retired some worked and some didn't.

2-I had a system that wouldn't boot from a perfectly good cd unless I hit del to enter the bios setup when booting, waited a moment, and then closed it without changing anything. Sounds weird, I know. But it worked. You might try it.
