  1. I tried this but the option re DD Image mode never appeared.
  2. I used Rufus and created both (at different times) a FAT32 and an NTFS file system on the same 16 GB USB. For both scenarios I used MBR partitions and with a 10GB persistent partition size, with the BIOS or UEFI target system option as you suggest. Running my Lenovo with Ubuntu 18 and BIOS set to go to the USB, it defaulted to the HDD Ubuntu 18 boot, making me wonder if a truly bootable USB was created.
  3. When I go to the alternative USB device screen it recognizes my USB (SanDisk) but then just shuts down when I ask it to boot from that device.
  4. It is indeed the American Megatrends Inc 2012 BIOS. However, in the Security tab or Boot screens I can't use the arrow keys to change the priority. I'm wondering if it's because there is an administrator password that I don't know.
  5. A friend gave me an ASUS T100TA with 2 GB Ram and 32 GB storage running Windows 8.1 (but somehow converted to an older version of Windows 10). I'd like to get rid of the Windows as it takes up 24G of 32G of disk space. I've created a bootable (I think) USB drive for Linuxmint but can't change the Bios to boot from it. (Or else the USB isn't bootable!) I can get to the Bios screen but I can't go to the boot priority choice to make the USB port the first choice over the internal HDD. Can anyone suggest how to get around this? Bob Thomson, Ottawa, Canada
