@TheDead, Thanks for your input. It seems, though, I've got a hurdle to cross before even buying the right SD/USB drive.
As a first step, I thought I'd use a USB drive on which I already had a copy of LL 3.8 just to see what it looked like.

I couldn't get my laptop to boot to that drive. I've followed the steps in BIOS, made the changes to boot order, saved them and exited but my laptop still persists in booting to Windows. I guess I must be doing something wrong but I can't get a screen shot of the BIOS to show you where I', at.

Hi,

Getting back to what was said in the thread... :
" If the laptop is UEFI only then it will need to use of experimental UEFI build."

When I look at the laptop specs, I'm pretty sure that is accurate. a Win10 laptop with a 64GB emmc "drive".
Are you using the3.x  UEFI build? If so I would maybe try the version 4 UEFI test build. The laptop being recent.
Sorry gotta go work, but link to UEFI builds download shouldn't be too far in the forums... Cheers!

Thanks.  It was good of you to take the time when you're rushing to work.


I don't think my machine is UEFI only because I can enter BIOS by the usual route ( hold f2 key on start-up)  and can navigate through the tabs. I've disabled security control and fast startup;   Ive enabled CSM and made my usb drive the number 1 option on start up then saved and exited.


Damn thing still boots up to Windows!!

Hi,
Not for the same Asus but there is an Option in Asus BIOSes in "Boot" called "Hard Drive BBS Properties".Note : You have to be in "Advanced" BIOS mode, not the nice graphics interface. The Advanced mode is the ugly text one ;)
You have to choose your USB key from there.
From :
I also though of something... I had some trouble in the past using some USB3 keys.On some combination of USB3 key versus USB computer controller I had (rarely) to use a USB2 key.
Ok... that what I have for now :-/
