Use 16GB Thumb Drive!!!! WYSE can not run bigger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dell Support Resources.I have a dell R rack server shipped without OS. When booting, error shows 'no boot media'. Steve is on the right path. The trouble may be the boot mode you are using. If that is the case, for a 13th generation Dell server; you would need to change your systems boot settings to be in BIOS boot mode in order to boot to that key.

With 12th generation server we had the option of a one time boot option from the boot manager. It worked better for these situations than 13th Gen does in my opinion. I have had to change the boot mode to BIOS mode to use said key. Hope this helps. If that option doesn't work, again, just use the UEFI version only scheme and see if that works better for you. Let me know how it goes. They include the HP system tools as part of the build.

I had two issues on a DL G7 that were similar to this. I don't know which on took care of the problem because I did both of them in one step so I have no way of knowing what the issue was.

Try making a bootable usb stick with something else than rufus, might work then. Happened to me once and still can't explain, cause rufus never failed me before. If there is, try that and then see if it will boot. If you image a lot of laptops from USB sticks you quickly learn to avoid the pretty blue USB3 interfaces and stick to the black ones. Also verify the USB stick actually boots on a workstation or something. They break easily and the creation process isn't always perfect.

Hiya, I have a dell R rack server shipped without OS. I tried with different iso and different USB.Hey everyone, I've been trying to boot my laptop from a USB in order to do a clean install of windows 10 but the laptop won't boot from USB. I updated the BIOS in case that was the problem.

I've tried turning off safe boot and all that but to no avail. The only thing that seems to be left is change the boot mode to Legacy instead of UEFI but dell advises against that and I don' wanna do that in case something goes wrong.

Macrium Reflect recovery media will boot a UEFI system just fine - it's best to make the media on the system you want to use the recovery for, and do so AFTER the system is fully configured teh way you want to run it. The way to boot a device on a temporary basis is using the F12 key during boot and use the Boot Device Menu. You don't need to change anything and the next time you boot, the normal boot priority will be used.

Unfortunetely they do not answer my question. Within the set up F12 or F2 you have multiple uptions you have to deal with in order to boot from a USB drive in the Dell Inspireon Last time tried I could not boot into the laptop. Please someone a step by step procedure on how to do this in able to use my recovery USB drive from Macrium. Thanks but entering F12 does not give you a straight forward option to choose USB for booting.

It's not like it was in the past. My reply points to my frustration. How was the flash drive prepared? What version of Reflect? And did you choose to make it with PE 4. Thanks everybody.

I'm getting frustrated because there are no error messages or any information being displayed. Thank you. Still yesterday I flashed usb in android using iso2usb apk app. I'll simply add two things. First, if the flash drive still doesn't work after preparing it with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, then try a different flash drive, because some flash drives apparently have trouble being used as boot devices. And second, when you get into Windows Setup, you may want to wipe your disk clean if you've had Linux on it and mucked around with Windows Recovery partitions, which as you suspect was not a great idea because on some systems it's actually the partition that Windows initially boots from, and if you use BitLocker it's also the partition that stores the files necessary to unlock the encrypted OS partition.

And Windows 10 upgrades, which will be arriving every March and September now, will always recreate it if it's missing anyway. To clean your disk once you're in Windows Setup, when you get to the point of the wizard where you select a partition to install Windows onto, delete all partitions listed on your disk until you're left with "Drive X Unallocated space" and nothing else listed for Drive X.

Since the normal problems have been well covered, perhaps going outside the box would yield so pertinent info. Flash drives are best if the size is GBs.
