Thread: 1.60 BIOS does not recognise bootable USB in Portege Z830

  1. 1.60 BIOS does not recognise bootable USB in Portege Z830
    #1
    Hello,
    I have a Portege Z830 with BIOS version 1.60. It runs a single operating system, ubuntu, (without a windows OS it does not appear to be possible to upgrade the BIOS). I have a bootable USB (debian, created by copying an .iso image using dd) which works on other computers, but not on this one. With USB at the top of the boot priority, it is not recognized as a bootable device and the computer boots from the HDD. The boot is in legacy mode, not UEFI (there is no UEFI/legacy switch in the BIOS menu).

    Any pointers how to enable a boot from a USB on this computer?


    Thanks and kind regards,

    James

    As you probably know, Toshiba doesn't support Linux so you cannot upgrade BIOS under Linux OS.
    It is also not offered to be installed from USB.

    It works like application and must be executed under running Windows.
