Hello all. So I have Tails Linux installed on a USB flashdrive. I followed an online instruction about using Rufus and setting it for GPT UEFI filesystem but that did not work. Here is my problem;
I use an Asus motherboard. When I load the BIOS, it shows the Sandisk with "UEFI" noted next to it. Like: "UEFI: Sandisk." However, under the hard drive priorities, you can pick a device just called "Sandisk" and put it ahead of the real HDD in boot priority.
If the system tries to boot from this "UEFI" thing, it just skips it and goes to Windows. If you hit the UEFI drive in the BIOS boot override menu, the screen goes black for a second, then the BIOS screen you were just on simply reappears.
Obviously I can dig into the BIOS and override to the Sandisk every time I want to boot this - but I was hoping for a way to be able to just plug the drive into the computer, restart, and find myself looking at Linux. Is there a way I can make this happen?
