    hi all.

    I am trying to extend the usability of my CF 18 and CF 30s, I want to use Linux but not have a partition setup on laptop. So I Built 2 separate usb sticks, one ubunto 13.2 and one opensuse Linux. Using them on desktop they will boot and of course not affect my windows.
    Now the strange on either usb stick will not boot on any of my laptop?? I tried in BIOS USB FFD< USB CROM< USB CD<USB KEY and not one of the laptops will see it on the boot-up, always goes into windows??? The little led lights do flash??

    Ubuntu I built using Rufus to install ISO into usb and make boot-able.
    opensuse I used its own program to build it.

    They both boot into regular desktop.????

    Any info please help.

    I would use a fresh and new usb stick 4-8 GB along with a great program called Unetbootin.

    Hi Unetbootin didn't work on laptop, worked great in desktop. Windows 7 worked flawlessly, it has to do with win 10 and efi, secure boot. I even disabled fast start did not work.

    common problem with 8.1/10, just have to keep looking.

    Win 8 and 10 require secure boot. Bios setting needs Legacy Boot Mode to boot to a flash drive. Nick :)
