Re: Cursor freezes trying to install

I am a Novice to this. I really do not know what you are asking. I have a USB Flash that is bootable. I'm at the point where the desktop has an Icon on it that looks like an old record disk. It says Install. I double click on that and the Cursor Freezes.

Re: Install Problem?

Alright, I got a USB stick. Now, how do I make sure it will boot from a USB port ? This is a Dell Inspiron 3185 Laptop if that matters.

Re: Install Problem?

OK, I will get a USB stick. Is it OK if I use a stick with something else on it or no? Also, you say "make sure my computer bios will boot to a usb port'. What does that mean? Thanks for your time and effort.
