Hi,

I did some tests with my asus x5din, using a usb 3.0 stick it is recognized, the 1.0 stick not. Before the usb 1.0 was recognized.

The only think changed is the grub update.

It could it be that the latest version of grub starts too fast?

Are you using the waitusb boot code?

Hi Juanito,

the default one (looking inside the file isolinux.cfg it is 5 seconds).
Let's talk about the fact that the pen drive on which we wrote the iso image is not recognized and therefore it is not possible to boot from usb.

Your machine is very modern and most likely a "UEFI" or uefi-only machine.

You might have to go into your so-called bios, and disable secure-boot, and also enable "legacy" support if you want to run any of the 32-bit *cores.

Thing is, with 8gb on board, your box will only recognize about 2gb of that with the 32-bit cores. :)

If your bios/setup routines don't allow for legacy support, your only hope is to run the 64-bit version of TC aka CorePure64 as some modern machines will not recognize 32-bit kernels at all.

corepure64

BUT, on some uefi or uefi-only machines, simple DD or even using 3rd party burning utils will not work.

Juanito has some great instructions on how to create a bootable 64-bit corepure64 usb, but you will do so manually to make sure the efi/boot and other partitions are referenced in the right order.

Failing that, you can use a special burner using YUMI-Uefi, but once burned, even that requires some modification and TinyCore know-how - kind of a catch-22.

Just saying - it *can* be done, but it isn't as easy with 64-bit modern machines like doing a simple burn-n-distro hop.
