My samsung n140 will not reboot from USB
Hello, my netbook will not load windows since an avg update. I am trying to reboot from a USB stick. When I f2 and choose usb hdd then save the computer just asks me to remove the device and press any key before it will go any further.
I run Windows 7 OS.
I am a relative novice but keen to use this as a learning opportunity and would be very grateful of any guidance or signposting to where I can get the information needed.
Basically, my samsung n140 netbook has AVG free on it since I brought it last year.
When AVG was updating the laptop powered down and now windows will not load up.
What I have tried so far............
.......I have downloaded AVG recovery CD (for USB stick) to my other computer,
I purchased a Sandisk blade 4GB USB and formatted in CMD prompt:
-create partition primary
once complete, I extracted the downloaded file to the USB stick.
I put this in my netbook fired it up, F2, then selected to boot from USB HDD , F10 to save.
The computer then would then attempt to load but stopped and asked me to remove the device before it would continue.
What am I doing wrong? I feel I am close but missing something important.
Very grateful of any advice.
