I am having trouble booting from USB on my XPS 15z. The BIOS version is A10.
extract from dmidecode:
Handle 0x0000, DMI type 0, 24 bytes
Vendor: Dell Inc.
Release Date: 02/20/2012
Runtime Size: 128 kB
ROM Size: 2560 kB
This has worked before, the computer was originally set up by booting
from USB (the esata/usb port). I am nit sure why this is not working
now. I read in another forum post that booting from USB stops working if
the computer goes into hibernate. In my case, this did happen because it
ran out of power. However, I have done a power cycle, and it still does
not recognize a USB device on the esata/usb port on power up. It does
see a usb disk on the next usb port, but when I try to boot from it, I
get the message "operation system not found". I have tried the USB key
on another computer and confirmed that the USB key is ok.
Can someone help me, please ?
Thanks in advance
