Updating eee bios
The devil is in the details, of course, but most Linux distributions have support for booting from USB.
A question that I would put to Acer is whether you can boot from a USB 3.0 port.
If not, then the USB flash drive is probably not be formatted as a bootable drive.
I would recommend you try booting the flash drive on a different computer to verify that it is working.
After you get to the boot menu, step five involves locating the bootable Crafted Flash USB device.
Some of the earlier BIOS/firmware only supported booting from USB 2.0 ports. What's worse is it even cannot boot from the USB disk created by Acer recovery manager. Hi Leon, Are the USB ports working at all on your Acer v5-573?Simply select usb hdd and then select the USB drive to boot from.If that is not working, then please provide the exact error message or an exact description of the problem behavior.Sometimes it will be listed on a sub-menu with the other hard drives.Keep in mind that most computers will also allow you to change the boot "priority" so that the bootable USB stick is preferred over the local hard drive.
