Q. I've tried to write the USB image to a thumb drive however the system will not boot from the device

A. Firstly, check that your USB drive has sufficient storage capacity. A minimum of 32GB is required for the USB image. Secondly, make sure that the boot sequence at the system bios is configured to start from the USB flash drive, before any other storage or NIC devices. Thirdly, make sure that there are no partitions on the USB flash drive and the entire USB storage is overwritten. ...In case you are still experiencing problems in trying to boot the system from the USB drive, please contact Sunlight support team for further assistance.
