Bootable USB stick won’t boot
You’ve made a bootable USB stick but Windows ignores it? You probably need to rejig your BIOS settings. For older computers running Windows 7 or earlier, tap F2 or Delete (Del) after switching on, then use the cursor (arrow) keys and Enter to navigate the BIOS screens: you’re looking for something like ‘Boot Order’ or ‘Boot Device Priority’. Your USB stick must be higher in this list than the hard drive.
