Detailed description:I want to install linux on my laptop.

Install on 5 different usb sticks, 5 different linux distros.

3 other laptop's running windows 10 and boot to usb, all 3 find the linux from the usb stick and install option show up.

My laptop asus u36sd, tested with all 5 different usb sticks don't show up the linux install options.

If i change the linux distro from the usb stick and make a windows 10 usb stick.... works and i can boot from the usb stick... change to linux.... nothing.

How can i disable this "protection" on the bios to allow me to boot linux ?

Note: using the Version 206 BIOS 206


  • Hummmm, ok no solution i can see....

  • Maybe if i wait more 2 years someone will find this

  • not today, maybe one day !

  • Another day maybe, someday someone will find this.

  • I've had similar issues and could only get around it by using a USB DVD drive instead of a USB stick.

    The laptop completely refused to boot from any USB stick no matter what options are set on the UEFI.

    Thansk For This information Sir I Really appreciate

  • But why can't i boot one linux dristro ?

    Do a really need to burn a DVD and boot from one external DVD drive to let me install Linux just because of some stupid windows protection ?

  • Hi Guys, is this a problem on all ASUS laptops ?

    I'm looking at buying a Zenbook because my gf has one and they seem pretty good, but if I can't put linux on it, then I can't use it. I haven't installed Windows on anything this millenium and I don't really want to start now. Especially since I might get Tiktok installed by default :lol:
