    As the title suggests I am having trouble with my laptop as I am unable to boot the device up with a USB stick containing Ubuntu.

    Any suggestions for fixing my problem?
    Cheers!

    Hi

    The BIOS is definitely able to boot from USB flash drive.
    You have to connect the USB flash drive to the notebook, then power up the unit and press F12
    Now you should be able to see the USB flash drive as booting device.
    Choose this and press ENTER.

    That’s it…

    PS: of course you have to ensure that Linux flash drive is bootable.

    Yes, the pen drive is definitely bootable as I am able to use it to install ubuntu on a virtual machine using VMWare.
    I have already figured out the boot, Ubuntu just doesn't load.

    Are you able to boot openSUSE from USB pen drive?

    If yes, then the issue is definitely with your Ubuntu pen drive.

    Actually, I figured out the problem.
    I downloaded a 32bit version and it seems to work.

    Pity I can't use the 64bit one, I'm pretty sure my laptop comes with a 64bit version of windows 7 HP.

    Fixed, I found out that using a 32bit version will work perfectly.
    Funnily enough, my laptop is using a 64bit copy of w7 HP.
