Can't boot with LiveUSB on Jetway motherboard
 
Hi.

I've created a Gentoo Linux LiveUSB and tested it on two laptops. Everything ok.

The issue is that I can't boot on my mini-itx Jetway J7F2 board. I've upgraded BIOS from version A8 to A14 hoping that

solved my problem. It didn't :(

On BIOS I've enabled:
  • USB Host Controller
    USB 2.0 Support
    USB Device Legacy Support
The main issue I think is that there is no USB-HDD option on Boot Devices list. Only USB-FDD, USB-ZIP and USB-CDROM (none of them work).

Anyone managed to boot from a usb pendrive on Jetway or VIA boards?

I have a diff mobo....but when you flashed your bios....generally you need to reboot and select load default settings.....then make any changes.

There also appears to be a manual at your link. Have you had a chance to follow it?
It appears to be .rar file
