    In an effort to evaluate Linux compatibility on my Razer Blade 15" 2018 Base Model, I've disabled Secure Boot and formatting a few drives using rufus and unetbootin. While I'm able to see and select the drives made with rufus, they just keep rebooting back to the BIOS, and my Blade doesn't even see the one made with unetbootin. Any thoughts on getting a good boot from usb with a live Linux distro?
     
  2. Don't know unetbootin. Rufus works just fine. Tested Fedora 29 as well as the latest Arch Linux. And they boot just fine from USB. Literally like on any other notebook. You even disabled Secure Boot, so everything should work unless your USB drive is corrupted. Boot your stick on a different machine and check if it works there.
