    Thanks
    Although nowhere is stated that this will fix the usb stick boot.
    I dont know where you found that text about booting from an usb flash device but till now no bootable usb stick seems to work on this pc. Tried also several usb ports.
    But maybe I will give it a try.


    This link should open a .pdf from HP . http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=3232029&docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c01302182


    There is a newer Bios 1.16 (11 oct 2011) your prsent one 1.15 (13 Aug 2008) it should boot from a flash drive (see below)


    I think this is yours http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=3232108&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=2104




    Easy...but how do you unpack the img file?
    create_installstick.exe....does it exist? I read that with the new downloads this file has been removed


    Stick would not work on my older pc....horrible
    I am really getting somewhat frustrated....I am using Windows, that is different than using Linux


    Use the Libreelec USB creator to create the USB stick. Explore the USB stick . In there you'll find KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5. These are the files you need. Go here Index of / and download OpenELEC-Generic.i386-5.0.8.tar . Extract the .tar to a folder. Within that folder you'll find one called 'Target', replace the 4 files inside that with the ones from the USB stick as mentioned earlier. Within the Openelec folder is create_installstick.exe use this to create your USB stick. You may have to re partition your stick fat32 active partition prior to this.


    Tried your way, no joy. Wiped the flash drive and used Openelec create_installstick.exe. Booted no problem, Intel NUCs can be strange things :)


    Give my method a go Harribo, a couple of posts up. Really straight forward. Works for me, I'd tried the USB creator, Rufus, Win32DiskImager, none of them worked. The same flash drive was used in all instances.

    My Intel NUC refused to boot from my flash drive created with the Libreelec USB creator utility. No way Pedro whatever I tried !.


    I knew it would boot of a flash drive made using the create_installstick.exe from Openelec.


    So I downloaded OpenELEC-Generic.i386-5.0.8 and extracted it to a folder on my PC.

    Then I installed LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-7.0.3.img.gz to my flash drive using the Libreelec USB creator.


    I opened the Openelec folder and opened the folder 'target' and deleted the four files inside.


    Now I explored the files on my USB flash drive and copied KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 from there to the folder 'target' within my Openelec folder.


    Using MiniTool Partition Wizard Free I deleted all the partitions on my Flash drive repartitioned and formatted it.


    Open the Openelec folder and use create_installstick.exe to create the Bootable flash drive


    Booted my troublesome NUC of it and worked perfectly. (Previously I had to install Openelec first and update to Libreelec from there. )
