My plan was to have handy linux distro anywhere I have my laptops...not working out so well.
I have 2 "modern?" laptops which support booting removable disks and usb devices...however changing boot order does diddly.
When I <supposedly> am booting off of usb device...I get single blinking caret in upper left of window and nothing else...no disk activity, etc.
I cannot boot Toshiba P25-S609 satellite on usbpen drive w/dsl pre-installed....nor does my brand spanking new Dell Inspiron 9300 work. On both I changed bios boot sequence so removable devices/usb come first..
From booting other os I have verified my pen drive did ship with linux filesys on it...just can't boot.
