    Another run-from-media choice for Linux is Knoppix. I got the CD, but you can download and burn your own copy.

    Boot from the CD and the system self-configures to your hardware

    Hi! If you can't boot from the flash you created, Try @jobeard suggestion and create CD.
    We all have our preferences. I have a old version of UBUNTU 14.04.3. It does all I need it to do.

    Did you read the post before yours? I cannot get it to boot into ANY thing. I have tried Esc,f1,f2,f3 & so on.:mad:

    It tells me to push or repeatedly tap a key. I've done so numerous times. Yes, I have been googling all morning.

    I posted a link about HP and boot options. If you have a HP, that's all I need!

    Hi I have no idea. I suggest you Google "How do I find my make and model" This can't be that hard.

    That is exactly how I got the info you're looking at. It told me to go to system info which showed more than that but I don't feel comfortable posting ALL the info it shoows.

    Hi. As you can see in my above reply. That brand is no longer supported. What is it that you're trying to do? I thought you were trying to run a Linux system on it. Have you ever been able to change the boot options?
