    Seems to be challenging to boot from usb.
    I think it has to do with this being UEFI and not BIOS.
    So your Linux sticks must be setup for UEFI with the boot//system info on the stick.
    I bet OSX will run like a champ on this..
    -------------------------------------------------
    Info copied from online.

    You just need a UEFI Bootable USB. Use an app called rufus to make one, worked like a charm for me to install the Pro version of Windows 8.1 32bit on this thing.

    Use Tutorial 1 on this page:

    UEFI boot is the trick.
    I have a win10 install usb stick and the 3E booted right to it.

    Have I ever checked into a live OSX usb stick?....I can't recall...

    Win 10 live usb works.
    Keyboard and touchscreen did not. A driver issue I am sure.
    A usb mouse worked fine in win 10 live..

    I will be brave and upgrade this to Win 10 soon.

    Shawn,

    Keep updating us. As much as I love XP, gonna make a clean break from it. Got a few old laptops that I keep around and just got around to updating a security patch from a few months ago. Didn't know that Windows released the patch for XP. Resisted long enough..making the move to 7 or 10 from now on.

    I have 8.1 on mine and so far I'm unable to boot from usb. That's not a big deal for me. I was going to try Linux but I'll get back to it this week.
