"Failed to claim resource" and "platform device creation failed" when trying to boot Linux from USB on HP laptop


So I'm trying to create a bootable Linux USB for my HP laptop for class. I've tried Fedora, Mint, and a couple others on different USBs. I've gotten it to boot with Mint before, but in the quest to get wifi to work with it, I ended up messing it up. Trying to get it to boot gets me to the menu where it asks for Live Mode or something else. When I select Live Mode, it tries to start, then it shows:
0.232546 platform MST0101:00: failed to claim resource 1
0.232686 acpi MSFT0101:00: platform device creation failed: -16

Then a multicolored loading bar appears at the bottom, but stops a third of the way. Help please? I have like 4 days before my homework is due, and I'd rather not use a Virtualbox on my desktop, since it works super slow. Thank you.

Hi...

Do you have Mint installed on your hard drive? If so, what happens when you try booting from that? Also what is the brand and model (and model number) of your laptop?

Regards...

No, it's on my USB. I do have ISOs of Fedora that I've been trying to get to work on my desktop Virtualbox. I'm running 64 bit Windows 10 Pro on a HP Pavilion x360 Convertible. Not sure about the model number, possibly 13-s128nr?

Hi...

Hmmm, if you were able to boot Linux Mint (from USB) before with no problems, I'm not sure why you shouldn't be able to do so now, as settings and configurations are not saved, at least to my knowledge. The only exception would be is if you made some change(s) in the BIOS. When you say you messed it up, what exactly happened? More details would be helpful.

Take a look at the page here and scroll down to "Notes for advanced users," there might be some useful advice there. As mentioned in that section, give Ubuntu 14.04 a try.

Regards...
