Building a new system and wanted to boot from a thumbdrive using LinuxCoin.
Only other storage device connected is a blank SSD drive (which will ultimately be configured as the main boot device).
I read the OP from this thread about LinuxCoin:http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=7374.msg108351#msg108351
1....downloaded the LinuxCoin.iso file and moved/saved it to a thumbe drive.
2.... Inserted thumbdrive into any USB port and attempted boot. I get the error:
"No bootable device, press any key to reset."
What step am I missing?
When installed, the USB flash drive is found/listed under Advanced BIOS features, and selectable under the boot sequence.
When not installed, the USB flash is not found when looking in the same.
I treid two USB ports. Trying one of the USB ports (whihc read "SATA"
) the SSD drive was not longer found on attempted bootup. It was found after USB flash drive was removed.
Using MSI ...GD70 MoBo & Anthlon II cpu.
Any help educating me on this [new to me] process would be appreciated.
