Cannot boot from Boot Media - Helix

2013-09-04, 13:06 PM

Dear all,

 

i have a Lenovo Helix and i am trying to Install OS using a Flash drive.

 

when i go to boot menu BY pressing F12, i can see my flash drive in the list

 

but when i select the flash drive to boot, it will not go forward it will come back to same screen.

 

i tried with different flash drives and external HDD as well. I have also tried with external CD room with a bootable CD. but the issue is same.

 

the same flash drive is working on another machine

 

Kindly advise how this can be fixed.

I found the resolution my self.

 

The tablets (Helix and even Microsoft Surface) does not support NTFS file system on boot devices.

 

i have formatted the device with FAT32 and it is working fine now.

 

thank you
