Dual boot allows booting Usb Debian live ?

Postby AngeloU » 2020-12-05 08:14

Installed 2 operating system :
1. Ubuntu
2. Windows

I have tried to launch a Debian live Xfce (by means of a bootable Usb pendrive written through Unetbootin) .
On booting I have the opportunity to modify :

Uefi firmware setting

Boot sequence -» Add boot option -» Boot option
On following page (Uefi setting) I do not know how to fulfil blank fields:


Name : [ Name of Usb bootable pendrive ?]
File system list : PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x17.0x0)/Sata(0x2.0x0)Hd(1.GF...... (reporting what I read)
File name [ ? ]

May be not the right way to start with live Debian system on a computer which has already installed 2 : Windows and Ubuntu.
Thanks everybody for helping (suggesting ) me. (Not urgent question).

See https://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#write-usb for the correct method.

The USB stick should be bootable by selecting it from your firmware ("BIOS") boot menu. Having other operating systems installed to the disk should make no difference whatsoever.
