Unable to boot from USB

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm having some trouble. I've got a Lenovo Thinkpad L540 and I've built the bootable USB using transmac in windows 7. I can't however get the machine to boot up from the stick. I've made the recommended BIOS changes in the guide including making the USB drive top of the boot order, but it doesn't work. I've formatted and applied the image several times using transmac. I'm posting as I tried the stick on my personally built desktop and it boots fine.

When booting on the Thinkpad, I can hit F12 for a boot device menu, I can select the usb stick so it's being detected ok, but when selecting it, the screen will go blank for a second, and return me back to the boot device menu. Tried all the USB ports as I know in the past some machines use 1 port for booting from USB but I'm getting nowhere. Any suggestions?

 

It's an i5-4300m

My desktop is an i7 3770k.

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
