Unable to Boot to USB Q572

Postby Andrew.Lister » Tue May 21, 2013 8:05

Hi
I have a Stylistic Q572, we were having some problems with the windows 8 install so we tried to reinstall, the recovery options were apparently not available, I tried to boot to a bootable USB but the BIOS does not see the USB drive, I updated the BIOS to the latest version still nothing so having used DISKPART to enable the recovery partition I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8 but it crashed during install so I am now in an endless loop as I cant boot to USB I cant install a fresh OS.

I would like to know how I can Boot to a USB device??
Many thanks
Andrew

Pretty sure secure boot will have to be Disabled in the bios.
To navigate more easily in the BIOS Setup Utility, you can use an external USB keyboard.
Starting the BIOS Setup Utility
► Keep the "Lock screen orientation" tablet button pressed and switch the Tablet PC on. BIOSSetupUtility
► If a password has been assigned, enter the password and press the Enter key.

any problems with switching to disabled means you might need to - Security - Set supervisory password first and - Advanced – Boot Configurations – CSM : [Enabled]

check in bios under boot
do you see your hard disk as a bootable option?

No, it's not. Only my external DVD rom, as EFI & BIOS.

After trying to do many things like entering diskpart, clean and format commands the hard disk appears under boot in Bios, and external DVD in both EFI & BIOS but after selecting to install in hard disk, copying installation files there is error required files missing. I'm using Win 8 64 Pro DVD. Same disk i used to install Windows on go on a portable hard drive and started my TAB and works fine but from external hard drive.
