Ok so, I finally found a solution: it seems Windows completely messed up the bootorder. I used EasyUEFI (I couldn't launch UEFI Shell), and first tried to change the boot order. After reboot, the order had been reverted (by Windows ? I suppose). I finally disabled the Windows boot entry, and it worked. I really don't know what happened, if this is Windows ...

A wikipedia article lists 1 million read/write cycles for eMMC flash memory, and lists the comparisons you ask for. This question is now extremely important for a second reason. A new line of laptops (eg, HP stream 13 or Chromebook) is using 32GB eMMC in lieu of a hard drive. With a fixed read/write cycle, these seem to be "disposable" laptops that you ...

It's trying to boot from a network source, just go to your BOIS settings and change boot order, put booting from HDD before NIC then save your settings and you should be ready to go.

That looks like PXE boot, if you press escape during this it should continue to boot. Otherwise you can go in to your CMOS settings and disable this as a boot option.

If we are speaking about enterprise grade switches, usually this delay is caused by Spanning-tree protocol, which is used to ensure loop-free Layer2 topology. Legacy standard 802.1D has it's weakness in slow convergence. That's one of the reasons that Rapid Spanning-tree Protocol 802.1w was evolved from 802.1D. There exist mechanisms for faster convergence ...

DVD+R or DVD-R or anything else. It doesn't matter. That stuff is all just media. How it is partitioned, formatted & burned is what matters. That's why you can download an ISO and just "burn" it to anything: CD-R, DVD-R, DVD+R, USB Flash, SD, Hard Drive... Whatever. It's all Just media.

I was searching months for a decent solution for this problem with same NP Samsung model. There are an incredible key-combination to boot from DVD-ROM and finally to get access. First thing is to reset bios configuration with RTC BIOS pins, located besides RAM slots (alternatively, you can remove the CMOS battery for a moment). Then, insert a bootable USB ...

In the BIOS, set CSM to enabled. Now it works.

No, you should be able to use a bootable DVD ISO image to make a bootable DVD. In your specific case of installing Windows 10 onto a PC running 8.1, you should be able to simply right click and mount the image, and run the setup from there.

The other three answers from jdh, harrymc and masgo all contributed in getting me to solve the issue but since none of them encapsulated everything, I am answering my own question here for others.

Got a solution for this..... remove ac adaptor and battery, press and hold the power button for 40-60 seconds. Connect only AC adaptor, switch on laptop. Then shut down and restart the system along with the battery. It worked for me.

The first stage of the Windows bootloader cannot read compressed NTFS files. These files include BOOTMGR and NTLDR, which are used for the second stage of the Windows boot process.

Here's the easiest way to fix your problem: Install EasyBCD 2.2. Goto Add New Entry. Select Linux/BSD tab in the Operating Systems Section. Select type as GRUB 2. Change Name to Ubuntu 13.10 (Optional). Select Add Entry. Finally close and reboot, now you should have the option to select Ubuntu 13.10 when you boot.

I had the same problem on my i7 computer ("scanning and repairing drive" in windows 8 boot), so i don't think it's a nVidia drivers problem.

Do you have a pc with UEFI ? if yes in BIOS settings should be something called boot override and form there you can select your usb device. If this doesn't work look in your BIOS settings and enable legacy option.

If you wish to fix the USB boot of Windows, just recreate the USB stick. Probably something went wrong with it, but rewriting will fix the problem. The safest action would be to use the Windows 7 boot USB to do a Repair Install. This will fix the currently installed Windows 7 while preserving user accounts, data, programs, and system drivers. Otherwise, ...

You should already have an EFI System Partition if you have another OS installed, but if you need to make one you can boot up your Arch installation, and create an FAT32 partition using what-ever partition manager you like (I'd recommend Gparted), then add a "boot" flag to the partition so it's identified as an EFI System Partition. The partition can be ...

Seems to me like windows restored the correct MBR to the wrong device (i.e., your USB stick). I would go ahead an use a different tool to restore your MBR. There are a lot of bootable ISOs out there. For convenience I would recommend you take something like UNetbootin or YUMI and choose one (or more) of the recovery images they offer. I would suggest a ...

I had the same problem, I found the solution by accident. Already tired of restarting again and again without burning took the USB as boot, I chose the option Hard disk and only then a choice appeared to me between the HDD and USB. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3.

As long as you tried it with YOUR laptop and his HDD and his MOUSE and YOUR laptop didn't hang. . . . You have found a hardware issue. As long as yours and his are the same IDENTICAL laptops. Same BIOS, firmware - same peripherals and same firmware in all peripherals. I admire your detective work and wish I could have responded in a comment.

Windows 10 is released as technical/Developer preview edition. Where I believe that the NVidia drivers chip set you are using is not support with the latest version. Mostly all the drivers will be fixed and available in the RTM version of windows. Please check the status in NVidia website for support NVidia chip set.

Most likely this is due to an incompatibility with Windows 10 and nVidia. Did you get the driver from the nVidia site or from Windows update? If you installed the one from the nVidia site try and reinstall on that partition, and then get the driver through windows updates.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 on the beaglebone black, so my setup may be a bit different, but here is how I loaded a custom dtb: In uEnv.txt, add a line with: dtb=name-of-desired.dtb The locations searched should be as specified here. For me this was /boot/dtbs/linux-kernel/ where linux-kernel is the name of the loaded version.

I've passed through this sometimes and it seems in your case that the graphic card could be broken. If the Laptop seems to run normally but the screen and you connect to a screen with VGA/DVI and see nothing, yes, the issue is probably the graphic card. It is a laptop so you're not able to change hardware but the RAM or Hard Disk, so it seems your laptop ...

Windows PE, Windows To Go, and Windows Embedded can be setup to boot from USB drives via a special pre-included driver. Other editions of Windows DO NOT support booting from usb. Long story short you cannot boot your copy of Windows, because it doesn't have the required driver, the driver it uses intentionally makes booting from USB not work. My suggestion ...

I searched for your problem on Google and found a great website which makes you do some work arounds especially when it comes to tricking Apple into accepting the boot image: The solution I found uses the ISO 2 USB EFI Booter for Mac (with unclear origin) to boot from the ISO image of a LiveCD, but with some small but important changes: use a FAT32 file ...

All I had to do is somehow remove partitioning table. Enable AHCI and hotswap in BIOS, disconnect Hard drive, then depending on your motherboard, press key for boot options (it was F12 for me). This will pause boot so that you have time to connect your drive. Select any drive, but before pressing enter, swap out SATA connector from that drive to your failed ...

At this stage, it is impossible to diagnose exactly your problem. As a simple example, you do not say whether the Mac requires (or not) an EFI boot. Installing a Linux system onto a Mac is not quite identical to doing so on a Windows pc. There is a large number of pitfalls. Online guides tacitly acknowledge this: for instance the Ubuntu wiki states: ...
