View Full Version : G551JM Boot Issue

12-12-2015, 01:45 PM
I have G551JM for a few months and everything was fine.
Most of the times I used a bootable flash memory to load TrueImage or other recovery software.
It means I always used a flash drive to boot rather than boot CD/DVD.
Even for Windows installation.

Now a strange thing happened!
Cannot boot using any usb flash!
I found if any flash or external DVD rom is inserted into usb ports, system will hang and won't boot!
Hang happens exactly on startup screen with ROG logo.
I have to remove usb flash or optical drive and restart!
I tried different usb flash disks with different boot software, no luck.
Please advise, it's really time consuming to use optical drive for recovery tasks!

Make sure these settings in BIOS like this if you trying to install cracked windows :
Secure Boot ----> Disabled
Fast Boot ----> Disabled

Cracked Windows ?! :(
I never do that, however, this does not apply to boot from Windows media only!
Even if boot with any other backup tool, also hangs!
