    Default BT5 hanging up during boot

    Hey all, I have been using BT4 for quite a while, and decided to start using BT5. After following the directions to boot from a usb persistent drive, I keep getting hung up on the attached screen. Am I missing something little?

    First thing I'd do is check your hardware against the hardware compatibility list forums. You might also try a different USB device, and/or port on your machine...just to be safe.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I'll sift through that forum, and I'll post my hardware here tomorrow. It can boot from a cd fine. I have tried it on two usb sticks.

    Have a look at your BIOS settings for anything weird. You might also try booting something else on one of your USB sticks, to rule out any problems there. Hope it works out for you

    I think it was the usb drive. A brand new 16G kingston. I got it to work with another stick. Why would one stick not work? That's weird.

    Thanks for they help!

    You're welcome. My guess is some incompatibility in the USB device.
