This question already has an answer here:
I'm currently using Ubuntu 13.04 on my ASUS F201E laptop. I'm trying to install I want to install Linux Mint 13 "Maya" - MATE (32-bit) because it's meant to be more compatible with my hardware.
I've already created a bootable USB (
sudo dd if=./linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-32bit.iso of=/dev/sdb) with the new OS on it no problem, and am now trying to reboot and install this new OS on my laptop.
My USB is recognized in the BIOS, (lets me open "EasyFlash" Utilities) however it's not recognized in the boot preference order - at the moment it only shows Ubuntu (but in the past has recognized a USB here too... The only boot option that shows is my normal Ubuntu).
I've played around with other BIOS settings, nothing seems to work. My fast boot is disabled, my launch CSM is disabled. There is an Add New Boot option, and when I open it, I'm asked for a pathway and I don't know how to write a pathway to my USB. My SATA mode selection is IDE (I changed this, can always change it back if need be.) Serial ATA port 0.
