Disabling secure boot should allow any Puppy to boot.
Secure boot is what requires UEFI compatible operating systems.

Quote:
press F2 before boot to get into BIOS. Under Security, set 'Secure Boot Control' to Disabled Under Advanced, set 'USB Controller Select' to EHCI 'Save Changes and Exit'

Plug the USB stick into the X205TA, start the system, and continue to press F2 to get the BIOS. From there, go to Save & Exit tab, and under Boot Overrid select the USB flash drive.

From this topic:
https://github.com/lopaka/instructions/blob/master/ubuntu-14.10-install-asus-x205ta.md


Formatting the USB flash drive to fat32 is sometimes needed, because some computers just expect fat32 format for USB flash drives. They will not detect anything else for a format.

I would try Tahrpup 6.0.2 or Slacko 5.7.
In Windows you can install them by using a program like Unetbootin.

Unetbootin.

Follow the directions for using an iso file you have already downloaded.

Either I'm not getting it or else maybe people are just jumping in with tips without actually reading the thread? Secure Boot is disabled. A perfectly valid Ubuntu distro doesn't boot, presumably because it's not UEFI enabled.

The ONLY thing I've seen work on this x205ta is a Quirky UEFI USB disc -- when I hit F2, it did show up as an option. The problem was it didn't boot.

So I don't think I need to create an old puppy version. I'm using Linux on all systems except the x205ta. So a simple way to test whether this UEFI Quirky that I created is actually working would be great. I don't want to mess around creating something older because that probably WONT be recognized by UEFI.

If anyone has a working, UEFI-enabled, Quirky-or-higher USB stick that's working on a UEFI system, I'd love to know the steps you took to make that happen.

Thanks so much!!!

So how did you create that USB stick you're using? Was it with Barry's installer?


I've done it with two scripts successfully. You will have to use a computer
that can run puppy precise 5.7.1 or a 32 bit version of puptahr

You can use
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/releases/werewolf-7.2.3/installquirky.x86

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/releases/april-7.0/4install-quirky-to-drive.gz

I found installquirky.x86 confusing to use Crying or Very sad There was so many options Rolling Eyes

I prefer 4install-quirky-to-drive.gz

If you are doing the install from a 64 bit operating system you use
installquirky.amd

The install notes by Barry are important to read

French users have reported that puptahr 64bit ( if it is updated with the newest kernel)
will boot successfully on this machine

Interesting, I tried with a different, apparently UEFI enabled boot USB with X-Tahr 6.x on it...had the same issue. It could SEE the USB drive but didn't boot from it. Even if I hit F2 and change the boot order.

Maybe doing what the last entry of this topic talks about.
http://askubuntu.com/questions/551320/ubuntu-on-asus-x205ta
He says to do this:
Quote:
Copy this file (bootia32.efi) to /EFI/BOOT directory on the usb stick.

Gives you a link to download the bootia32.efi file.
I assume you also need to make the directory /EFI/BOOT on the USB drive.

UEFI Feature was introduced in Windows 8 and is also in Windows 10. You should try to disable fastboot or secureboot and make the booting process Legacy.

Subject description: Boot Option #
 

thesun,
I realize this is an old thread. But, maybe you are still struggling with the issue.

Quote:
So I am stumped. I did change the boot to EHCI, Boot Security is disabled, but the only option for booting in the Boot Priorties window is "Boot Option #1 Windows Boot Manager."


Can you create another boot option # for example: Boot option #2 then change the sequence of that option placing it before Boot option #1? I am not positive, but, I think those bios give you a way to create another boot option # and change the sequence.

I think you have a combo of issues here. One, the boot option # and two, which Puppy to use. The machine is a PAE machine and will need a PAE Puppy.

How did your wife's trip go?

Yes, I'm still struggling with the issue. But I've had so many other things to do I thought I'd wait a bit. Smile Thanks!

I bought an X205TA last year but returned it after having lots of issues
booting to Puppy Linux. From what I read, the Bay Trail Atom processor is particularly
unfriendly to USB booting, requiring a 32 bit UEFI implementation. The X205TA
didn't have a legacy option in the BIOS, which I find to be the best way to boot
Puppy Linux. I've tried a couple of low cost Celeron laptops such as the HP Stream 11
with much better success.

I'm currently using an I3 laptop, and it supports USB booting, but only after Windows 10's
Fast Startup is disabled. It seems like the manufacturers are going out of their
way to make multi-booting inconvenient.
