    Unable to boot from USB in Win 8 (Asus S500c)


    So the laptop is in Automatic Repair loop. Fast boot and secure boot are disabled in BIOS and the machine recognises the USB because if it isn't plugged in, it doesn't come up. I've set it to boot from USB first with HDD 2nd - no go. I've tried USB first and no other option - nothing. Finally managed to get the boot option menu come up (not BIOS) - still nothing.
    What am I missing? I can't boot from a DVD as this machine doesn't have one

    Try pressing F8 on the Asus splash screen this should call the boot menu.

    Boot Menu comes up with the escape key and I do get the choice of HDD or USB but selecting it doesn't work
