Recently I've been trying to install a new operating system alongside my current two(Vista and Ubuntu(through Wubi)), but the main problem with it is that I need to boot from a Live Disc, so I have a USB and DVD both with the same OS I want to boot with, and my BIOS gives the option for both of those(if I'm interpreting the names right) in the boot menu. I put the boot menu in something like this(from memory. I don't know how to take a SS in BIOS.).
1: Optiartic CD-R Drive
2: USB FDD
3: USB CDROM
4&5: Network boot (unnecessary really.)
I put the Hard Drive at last so I could give every other type of boot a chance to work first, but I always end up at the boot choice for Vista and Ubuntu, and it never boots into the OS I have on the disc or USB, which are both in at the same time, and I've checked all the USB ports for the USB drive, and my CD drive can also read DVDs.
Thanks in advance,
Edit: oh and yes they work, it's the same file on both and I was able to get the USB working on the family computer.
This laptop is only about 4 to 5 years old.. -ish.
Edit2: Ooh I forgot, I'm using an Acer Aspire 5315-2326 laptop, and My BIOS version is ACRSYS - 1, if memory serves.
