        * If it will simply not boot with some sort of an unknown/weird error - it could be a one time glitch, turn off the computer and try again.


    If USB boot device is missing from boot menu - enable "Legacy Boot Mode"

  • Boot into BIOS/UEFI: Turning On/Restart the computer and immediately start tapping the BIOS Setup Key
  •    > BIOS Setup Key: Similar to Boot Media Key, BIOS Setup Key is different depending on the computer brand. Usually, you will see which key it is during the BIOS splash screen (on the bottom or top of the screen), which is the very first thing that will appear on the monitor when computer is turned on/restarted.
    > If it is not displayed, usually it's: F1, F2, F8, F12 or Del key, here is the list of common brands and the corresponding BIOS Setup keys:
           >> ACER: F2, Del
           >> ASUS: F2, Del
           >> COMPAQ: F1, F2, F10, DEL
           >> DELL: F2, F12
           >> EMACHINES: F10
           >> GATEWAY: F1, F2, ESC > Del
           >> HP: Esc, F10
           >> IBM LENOVO: F2 (or Fn+F2), F1
           >> INTEL: F2
           >> NEC: F2
           >> PACKARD BELL: F2
           >> SAMSUNG: F2
           >> SONY: F2
           >> TOSHIBA: F2
  • Once inside the BIOS/UEFI setup and configuration section, you’ll be presented with a number of options and parameters that can be configured for the firmware environment. The option you’re looking for has many names, depending on the make and model of the PC or laptop and the EFI firmware. Here is a list of common/typical settings, which need to be turned on to enable Legacy Mode:
           >> Legacy Support: "On" or "Enabled"
           >> Legacy CSM: "On" or "Enabled"
           >> UEFI/Legacy Boot: "Both" or "Legacy Only"
           >> Boot Mode: "Legacy Support"
           >> Boot Option Filter: "UEFI and Legacy" or "Legacy Only"
  • Booting with USB - Enabling USB Legacy Mode
  • When exiting BIOS/UEFI, make sure configuration options are saved.
  • Booting with USB - BIOS - Save configuration

If USB boot device is still missing from the Boot Menu or you are still unable to boot with the USB, check to see if USB Booting is turned off completely and turn it on. Also try turning off "Secure Boot" in BIOS. Restart the computer and try booting with the USB again.


Once booted with the USB - you should see a menu where you can navigate with Arrow Keys/Enter to select and boot with the desired Operating System or Utility:

Tech Store On USB - Once Booted - What to expect Tech Store On USB - Once Booted - What to expect Tech Store On USB - Once Booted - What to expect

      This is a bootable USB thumb drive with the most recognizable and user-friendly Linux Operating System – Mint Cinnamon, which is one of the closest to Windows looking Linux operating system! Comes in 32 bit and 64 bit. It includes software for everyday computing - Office Suite, Web Browsers, Video, Photo Editing, Multimedia, Games and so much more! Includes lifetime free updates and multi-language support. Install or Run directly from USB alongside Windows or Apple MAC OS X Live!

      Adhering to the Mint philosophy, Cinnamon gives a desktop experience that a Windows user would expect. The taskbar-esque panel at the bottom, the start-esque menu on the left corner and the notification area on the right make it look very close to a Windows desktop. There are some options you can find in cinnamon-settings but customizability is nowhere close to what you get on other environments. For most users, customization or the lack thereof is not a deal breaker here because a Linux Mint user would expect everything just work out of the box.

      Boot Repair Disk is also included on the USB as a bonus, Boot Repair Disk - is a live CD that repairs multiple Linux distributions. Boot-Repair Disk repairs the GRUB boot loader of Linux and can repair multiple editions of Microsoft Windows operating systems. Boot-Repair-Disk serves as a free recovery disk with a one-click repair design system. It does not require internet connection to run!

    Linux Operating System Included (PC and Apple MAC bootable):
  • Linux Mint Cinnamon 32bit / 64bit
  • Boot Repair Disk Windows/Linux

    System requirements:
  • PC Computer (any brand) with USB 2.0 / 3.0 port which can boot with USB drive
  •    *** Sometimes you may need to adjust your BIOS settings to allow booting with USB!

  • Bootable USB ability only needed for bootable tools
  • NO internet connection required, everything you need is on the USB drive!

You can install Linux alongside Windows (Please note: Sometimes you need to Shrink the C:\ drive for some unallocated space in Windows first, before you can install Linux alongside! You can find instructions on how to do it HERE) and Apple MAC OS X (there is some advanced knowledge required to actually install Linux alongside Apple MAC OS X, but you can easily use it live (Desktop version only, Server – you have to install!) with the USB plugged in)! You can also install as many operating systems as you want. With multiple operating systems – at the initial boot it will give you a menu where you can select which operating system you want to boot. (You can as well erase the hard drive and install each OS as the only one)
