View Full Version : Help with Booting Samsung Magician - GM501GS

10-26-2018, 04:18 PM
I cannot boot / load into Samsung Magician v5.2 bootable secure erase tool. I have checked the USB drive on another computer where it does load.

On the GM501GS I have disabled secure boot and placed into AHCI mode. There is no option for me to enable or disable CSM mode (not sure if this laptop has the option to do so). Legacy USB is enabled. I am using the current BIOS version (3.06)

The boot menu screen does show my USB drive but when I select it to boot nothing happens.

Has anyone been successful?
