It's not an Intel issue, it's a user issue. If you don't have the latest BIOS, get it now while you still can.

thanks but I think it's an Intel issue if the bios shows that it can boot from usb and yet it doesn't

Got an optical drive? Use that instead. If not, the proper BIOS settings are shown on the neverware link in my other response.

I remember this being a problem with older systems and OS's too where an installed OS would only boot to a blinking cursor. One suggestion was to set a hard disk pre-delay. From:

https://www.intel.com/assets/pdf/pr...

This boot time may be so fast that some drives might be not be initialized at all. If this condition should occur, it is possible to introduce a programmable delay ranging from three to 30 seconds (using the Hard Disk Pre-Delay feature of the Advanced Menu in the Drive Configuration Submenu of the BIOS Setup program).

Wouldn't hurt to try.

I suppose it was a long shot, However if in the process of fixing this you need to reinstall the OS, do so while pre-delay is enabled.

Another fix I saw while trolling around was to remove all externally connected devices--not the USB drive I'm sure--and reboot. I can't find the link again but that was the gist of it.

Instead of purchasing a DVD you can create a new DVD from here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/sof...
as long as you have the activation key to activate it.
Then you can install it from the optical drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hi Sprite,
above suggests you have installed the os on the usb on a different pc.

Am wondering if this is unacceptable to the Intel Mobo you are trying to boot.

Think to boot successfully, requires either an Installation usb (downloadable from ms)
or an os installed using the Intel Mobo pc itself.

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode?

Good Luck - Keep is posted.
