    USB Boot

    Hi,

    Is it possible to boot from a USB stick on the Transformer T100 TAR

    Can't really find a straight yes / no answer, some say yes and other say no.

    Can anyone confirm which is right

    Yes, you can boot from a properly prepared USB drive.

    You will also need to go into the BIOS and change the boot order to boot from USB drive first.

    I get 8-12 hrs use per charge using SLEEP mode. Warning, NEVER calibrate the touchscreen.

    I don't have USB as a boot option only Windows boot manager.

    Any ideas how I get it to show Usb.

    Should it boot from both usb ports, as the keyboard on does not work

    Do you have a USB stick plugged in? If you don't the system won't know it is there.

    I'm not really sure but I think you can use the microUSB connector with an OTG cable as a USB flash drive connector. If you try that, make sure your tablet has 100% charge on it since the microUSB port will be in use and the device can't be charged while the OTG cable is plugged in.

    If that won't work and your keyboard USB is inop, you have a problem.

    Thanks for all the advice, still not been able to get it to boot from the USB, just can't find any USB options. Think it will have to have a little trip to Asus.

    Rule No1 on it's return - Don't mess with things i don't know about

    Rule No 2... never go down an unknown road unless you have a way back.
