    Any suggestions? I would like to be able to store data and files so running off of a USB live installation would be prefered.

    I have the G75VW-BBK5 with an Intel 520 SSD as boot abd the original 1TB as data. I did add 8GB of Patriot RAM.

    I tried Mint and Knoppix and some others. Mainly the 32-bit would install, albiet slowly (live usb) but the 64-bit versions just froze upon boot.

    I'll try again tonight and get more info.

    I don't know about Mint and Knoppix, but Slax has a really good live version of Linux and I hear the live version for OpenSUSE is pretty good too, give those a go if and when you can

    What are your BIOS settings? Those can affect boot on the newer systems.

    Live version of Slax works great in a VM, but it isn't meant as a long-term system, though with configuration you could make it into that. It is designed as a rescue distro to recover stuff when your main OS won't boot.

    Debian Live has persistence, I believe, and I know that Slax does. It detects whether or not you are booting from writable media and makes the ability to store data if necessary.

    Do you really want Live, or do you simply want to install LINUX? If you want to install LINUX directly, make free space on the end of a partition and go with a non-live installer (Such as the one for OpenSUSE).

    PS - at the end of my 1 year ASUS warranty and I just spilled tea on my g74sx. Result = stuck left mouse button. Frack.
    This is terrific info @quaid; thank you!! I have bookmarked this thread and those links of yours, and will return to them if/when I get an ssd to put in my g74!!

    Sorry about the tea. I had an accident with my lappy today; was walking down to my pickup point for work (I go in with two ther guys), and stepped on a patch of clear solid black ice. Feet went up in the air, and landed, yes, on my G74 in my backpack! Ouch. The plastic screen frame came out on one side, but it snapped back into place with some pressure, but there is now a clicking sound when I tilt my laptop around, like a small piece is now tinkling around inside. But, everything works 100% fine; ran the hell out of it today, and so far I notice no unusual behavior. Screen is still tightly hinged as it always was.

    Gotta hand it to ASUS; its a solid machine!

    Love the avatar and I hope your back is better! The computer can be replaced, the back not so much. Unlike ASUS, God didn't give an accidental damage warranty on body parts.
