How can I identify which of my usb drives can be made bootable
I don't know if this is the best place to ask hardware-related questions. If not and you know of a better location, either in the StackExchange network or elsewhere, please tell me.
Using the exact same Linux image, the exact same application to transfer the image to the USB key (eg. UNetBootin, PenDrive Linux, etc.) and the exact same test laptop... I noticed that some USB keys will happily boot the laptop while others won't.
I need to know...
- Why this happens?
- Is there something I can check before buying a USB key, so I don't end up with keys that just won't boot an OS?
