Change Boot Sequence in BIOS

Most PC’s, Laptops & Thin Clients have the option to boot from an external USB device, but this is not always enabled but default. This process varies between hardware vendors, but we have provided some options below that will assist.

When the device first boots try pressing the Esc Key, F2, F12 or Delete button to get into the BIOS. Vendors like HP use Esc, then F9 & Intel use F10.

Once you have access to the BIOS, you can then go to the boot menu and then you should see your USB device listed. Typically, this is below, HDD, CD-ROM & Network boot. You should be able to use either the up & down arrow keys, or even the +/- keys to change the boot order. Once you are satisfied that your USB is set to the first boot device, save your settings and exit the BIOS. Your device should then reboot using the attached USB device into NoTouch OS.

It’s also worth noting that if you boot your device without the USB key attached it will boot normally using your HDD so don’t worry you won’t have to make this change every time you want to boot your device.

UEFI based devices are supported. However, if you do have any issues then you can normally turn this off and boot in legacy/BIOS mode.

Stratodesk NoTouchGo does not support secure boot so please ensure this is disabled otherwise the device will not boot.
