Hello everyone

I'm actually running Ubuntu on an Asus X501A w8 native, I'd like to install another os from USB drive (since it has no internal cd reader) but I cannot find the USB option in boot (bios version: 2.15.1226) but I did it in the past and it did work well.. USB were detected and so the external DVD reader... What happened? :(  now the only options available are the internal hard drive and the network device no other options...

Does your BIOS have a "add to boot list" option? On my last build i had to go in and select different items to add to the boot list before i could select them. Also, what format is your USB drive, and is the OS file in .iso format?

I formatted the usb in fat32, yes it is a iso image downloaded from the ubuntu official site with unetbootin, I did utilize the same usb in the past and it did work well... are you in knowing of a method to fix the eventual bios errors/ to fix the fact of not detecting the usb?

Thank you for your answers!
