Asus ux31 a BIOS and boot problems

Post by timbojo » Mon Feb 10, 2014 14:17


I finally decided to install sabayon linux on my laptop. I updated my BIOS to the latest version (as far as i know its already an UEFI/BIOS mix) and after some trouble I was finally able to boot from USB-stick (the ux31 a doesn't have a CD-Drive). Here are some pictures showing my BIOS-Settings:

Image So I was finally able to Boot from USB

Image Settings 1

Image Settings 2

Image Settings 3

Image Settings 4

"How to reproduce"

So I booted from USB-Stick

and pressed "installation" on the selection screen and a few seconds later i get the following error message:
No iscsi initiator found
Media not found
No bootable medium found. waiting for new devices..
Media not found
Could not find CD to boot, something else needed
Please file a bug report with this message

"What you did prior to breakage"
This is the first time I try to install sabayon-Linux

"What OS/DE are you running"
At the moment I am running win 8.1 on one Partition (128GB) and have an empty partition of the same size (128GB) for Linux


As seen on the picture above

Output of Dxdiag:
256 Gb Adata SSD, intel i7, intel HD 4000 Graphics, 1920x1080 resolution

So I think this problem is somehow related to my BIOS-settings but I have no clue what it could be.. Thanks for your effort people!!
