View Full Version : G771 BIOS Boot Override

07-02-2015, 10:29 PM
Hi all. I asked this question in another website, and they basically gave me circular answers (i.e. no help).

I am trying to side boot a Linux OS from my USB. My USB is formatted as a live boot, tested on another computer, so I know it works.

I have gone into the BIOS and done the following:
Disabled/Turned off "Secure Boot"
Selected USB as Boot Priority #1

I go to the Save & Exit tab, and there is a "Boot Override" section. I have tried, numerous times, to change the order from the Windows Boot Mode (HDD) to the USB.

I have even selected the USB directly from this screen.

Each and every time, it boots to the Windows HDD sector. How do I defeat this? I am almost ready to throw this laptop under a Mack truck from frustration.

I am running Win 8.1

If this has been addressed before, a quick link will suffice.

Thanks in advance.
