Boot from USB drive?

Hello.

I just got my Panda and I got it set up and running but I would like to try an alternative OS boot from the USB drive. Is this possible?

2016-05-22 16:16:23 I also have the same problem. I noticed that if I create the bootable stick with diskpart from windows, it is recognized as a bootable device when I press F7, but it still doesn't boot from it. Is it something in the UEFI bios that I have to configure? userHeadPic whoobee

Thanks. I've tried with all 3usb ports. It must be some sort of configuration problem. Interesting that I am not the only one with this isssue...

I tried the F7 option and got in to the boot select screen but none of usb drives were recognized.
