    Cant boot from external Media


    Hi there

    Here is, what i already try, in order to boot from USB/DVD:

    Change the Boot Sequence in UEFI
    Try to boot with UEFI, CSM and UEFI/CSM
    Disable Secure Boot
    Hold Shift, while click Restart.
    Disable FastBoot

    My Media get simply not recognised, while they do their Job on other Devices.

    I know, that this might be a Hardware/UEFI (implementation) Issue.

    Kingston USB Stick and Verbatim DVD. Contains KaOS GNU/Linux with UEFI Support. They work on another Device.

    disable secureboot

    and use F12 to select the boot device

    you may see the Linux usb listed twice - UEFI and CSM

    test the boot options and report back
