Re: [PLUG] BIOS Troubles

I'll try the bootable CD tonight. But the problem is, the only optical drive I have is external and uses USB itself. Since it gives me a blank screen even with SATA disks are connected, I have my doubts as to if that will work.

About the spam: Very odd. This is hosted email by protonmail (I only control the DNS records). I'm passing all the checks from

SPF check: pass
DomainKeys check: neutral
DKIM check: pass
Sender-ID check: pass
SpamAssassin check: ham

I'm going to add a vote to the "boot without USB and insert it at prompt" suggestion.

Also, after having this email pointed out, I also found it in spam. Seems you're not passing the SPF checks specified by Local mail client trying to send directly?

Make a bootable CD with the same files as your bootable thumb drive,
and boot from the CD. Either that will get you past this, or it will
give you the needed information that it's probably not about the thumb
drive, it's probably about what's *on* the thumb drive.
