    Experiencing the same problem than


    looks like the issue is in the pendrive itself. I have two PNY pendrives, one 8GB and another 16GB. I can use YUMI or any other app to add a distro to the pendrive, format them, etc, but when booting the BIOS does not recognize them.

    Tried in an old X31 laptop and in a new HP ProBook laptop with same (bad) result.

    I though it was because of the big size but many people use 16GB pendrives for these purposes...

    (BTW, tried also formating them and the distros were way smaller than 4gb...)
