Web search “boot usb without bios support”. At this time I chose to wipe the hard drive clean. Note on archived topics. Turn off the computer and wait 5 seconds. The Preboot eXecution Environment PXE, and also known as Pre-Execution Environment is an environment to boot computers using a network interface independently of data storage devices like hard disks or installed operating systems. It takes for ever to load the Live CD and sometimes does not load it correctly although I did get full load yesterday. Can someone please help me.
