I have just gotten an old ASUS Netbook from my boss. They were gettjng rid of a bunch of old hardware and I got my hands on an old still perfectly good ASUS eee Netbook. Naturally I decide the first thing to do is to install a linux distro. Going on to use Xubuntu 14.04 X86. Get my bootable usb drive (my tablet with a fancy app on it that works on every other pc I have tried) and it will not boot. I go into the bios and disable quiet and quick boot (I already have it set to boot of of removable drive) and still nothing. I then try to manually select usb at boot (pressing escape at boot) and it won't even show my drive. The only choice is the hard drive (side note: the hdd is only 4 gigs!) Does anyone know how to get the darn thing to boot off of the drive?
the stuff before was like a story with hidden info
1. I went into the bios and set the first device to "removable div." (failed) 2. I went into the bios and set quick and quiet boot off (failed) 3. I tried to select the boot device on startup instead of letting the pc do it for me (failed)
On the boot device list the only thing that even showed up was the HDD. I would have tried a CD but I have no usb DVD drive. Im at a loss and a couple hours of research proved to be useless.
