I have an ASUS x401-a and I'm trying to boot backtrack 5 via usb which I've done previously with windows 7 and my acer aspire , when i reboot it i hit escape and it brings me into bios settings i put my usb chipset as the 1st in boot priority order and try to boot backtrack and it boots straight into windows 8 everytime.... Some one please help me with this I miss security testing on my network. Thank you in advance. Volk.
if so try F10. It should give you a list of device to boot from
I've found out how to get to it in Bios you have to hit escape key and I've seen this list of devices to boot from & placed my USB First in the priority boot order, and I hit f10 and save the changes and reboot & it boots right back into Windows 8.... I think this has something to do with UEFI settings in windows 8 I've tried just about everything I could think possible. thanks for the suggestions though Emerald!
Ok it's about a week later, here's what I've tried so far. Turning Legacy On, disabling fast boot, putting my USB as first in priority Boot, have disabled Secure Boot & fast boot, and still when I hit F10 save settings and restart it boots right into Windows 8 Everytime. Any one know What other options alternatives I have? thank you
Hi, not sure you were able to fix the problem. I had the same issue.
Go into your bios, disable fast boot - enable legacy CMS. then disable all other boot locations.
press F10 - restart the computer and you should be able to boot from USB now.
Let me know if you have any question, i don;t have my computer available at the moment,
so I can not give you more information. good luck
