Cause: Because Secure Boot is on and Boot Legacy (Launch CMS) is off, your computer can not boot from a USB drive or CD.

How to fix a laptop without USB Boot:

Step 1: You need to boot your computer and enter BIOS mode.

Step 2: Use the up and down arrow keys to select the Secure Boot Menu.

Step 3: Use the up and down arrows to select Secure Boot Control and select Disabled to disable Secure Boot.

Step 4: Press F10 on the keyboard and select YES to save the setting.

Step 5: Press the ESC key on the keyboard to return to the original screen.

Step 6: Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate to the Launch CMS tab. Select Enabled and press Enter to enable the Boot Legacy (Launch CMS) mode.

Step 7: You continue to press the F10 key on the keyboard and select YES to save the setting.


After turning off the Secure Boot and launching the Boot Legacy (Launch CMS), you have fixed the issue of your Laptop not detecting a USB flash drive during bootup.

Hope this helps. :)

Very and simple solution I knew for years.
It is so easy to fix this problem instead of having to pay to technician to do it for you.
In my county that is 20$ spent for nothing.
I use USB a lot, to transfer files from two laptop's me and my brother own and we had this problem in the past.
One should be careful when rebooting the computer and read instructions carefully since it is easy to mess it up.

It can be fixed easily , just after starting your laptop go to the BIOS setup then change the boot order i.e set the USB as the first preference in it. And if your laptop is not recognizing differnt usb's just check with the usb drivers once and update it.

Those steps will help you when you are ready to booth the computer the plop boot will appear and you can choose it and boot it straight form your USB flash drive.
