I'd like to put linux onto a usb key and use it to boot my (windows) laptop.
I've tried with:
following several tutorials; the last one is this:
Unfortunately, none works.
The usb key is actually detected by the laptop BIOS; but when trying to boot, it just stands still for a couple of minutes on the first boot screen, then windows starts.
Could it be any hardware problem with my laptop, booting from a usb key?
My laptop is a Toshiba Tecra.
I can't use a boot floppy, since it has no floppy drive.
