Dell Venue 11 Pro - Cannot boot from USB

This question is not answered

I seem to be having problems booting from the USB port. I'm attempting to boot memtest86 and linux from the thumb drive but when I go to "change advanced startup options" > Use a device > the USB drive is no where to be found. This is with two different USB sticks. Instead, all it sees is my sandisk memory card.


What am I doing wrong here?

My Systems:

Inspiron E1505, PowerEdge T100, PowerEdge SC430, PowerEdge T310, Venue 11 Pro 7130 i5 4210Y, no more, sold it and bailed. Good luck.

    Be sure to prepare the memorystick the correct way.

  • Also, disable secure boot, move your USB device to the top of the boot list, save and restart then F12 to get boot menu.  Select USB Storage Device from the Legacy boot list, and off you go!

  • Thanks. Now I just can't find any working Linux distros that will actually boot for me on Venue 11 Pro. :/
