Hello, I only have one usb port on my laptop, and I want to boot linux from a usb stick. But when I plug my bootable usb through a usb hub (non-powered) my computer doesn't recognize it. Also, I can't take the bootable usb after the OS is loaded, because when I put it back again the OS doesn't seem to work.

My question is: How can I get my computer to recognize the usb hub before the OS is loaded. Or, is there a way to remove the bootable linux usb and plug it back again without ruining the session?

Have you gone into your bios and set the boot priority to usb?
