Surface pro will not boot from USB
Posted on 2013-10-24
so i have a surface pro that i've been testing on and for some reason now holding the volume down and the power button will not allow me to boot from USB
i know the usb is good because i can boot another surface pro with it, also on the surface having issues i can do advanced boot options and choose USB and it works.
this is a surface i've been testing MDT deployments on so i don't know if that has anything to do with it? i know that when i go into the boot from other device menu i have multiple windows boot loader options (5-6 pages)
my problem is now the surface is blue screening and will not boot into windows so i have to boot from usb to repair it and i am un-able to.
does anyone know how to reset it? or am i going to have to pull it apart and wipe the hard drive and try that?
Never mind about taking it apart, just looked at a tear down. Surface is still under warranty I'm not prepared to do all that just to get to the storage unit.
