Hi, I'm trying to boot from a USB drive on my SW5-012, but I can't get it to recognise the key.

 

Here's what I've tried:

  • Both the micro USB and the one on the dock
  • Multiple USB drives with multiple ISOs installed with multiple programs
  • Disabling Secure Boot
  • Updating EVERYTHING

Before you ask: 

BIOS version: v1.14

Exact model: SW5-012-176R

And no, there isn't an option called "Legacy mode"

 

How can I get the laptop to recognise my USB key and boot from it?

    If you haven't looked through this thread, please do, there appears to be a resolution there for what you may be trying to do.

    I already looked through that post and also the first 10 pages of google search and noone has been able to do it.

    franga2000,

     

    You are trying to use the Acer Recovery USB to reload and it's not accepting the key? I guess I'm confused on what you are attempting to do exactly, if you could elaborate a little further. Smiley Happy
