Hi,[QUOTE=Slmz00;2567388]Thank you for the quick reply![/quote]You’re Welcome
The original firmware I flashed to was povided by support.dell by inputting my Service code, the only file on my computer that might be is DE04.bin. In hindsight I trusted Dell a little too much by not paying very close attention and will never again.
DE04 is firmware for TS-L632D. This should be the correct one.
I have seen newer BIOSes and they have a boot to USB option. In my BIOS under BOOT, I have cdrom, hdd, broadcom, removable devices. When I restart with my USB plugged in, it shows up as “system3 USB” in the hdd section in boot. I can disable the main hdd by pressing “shift & 1” but it still says “no operating system” and stays there.
There might be several reasons:
[ol][li]Your Dell is not able to boot from USB devices (what happens if you press F2 for the “one time boot menu”?) - according to the manual, it should be able to boot from USB storage devices.
[/li][li]Your USB stick is not bootable (then try another one if you have one, smaller sizes are preferred)
[/li][li]Something went wrong when you prepared the stick - Try Dell’s Diagnostic Tool to create a bootable USB stick. At least this should rule out this point.[/ol]

This thread is almost same problem. I think I used the H firmware too because Dell recommends it automatically.
[/QUOTE]Very unlikely since TSST flashers check the hardware before (unless you have used the -nocheck parameter )
