USB Drive Not Bootable after Restart

Recommended Posts

This is a really strange issue I am encountering, whenever I do a normal reboot the system hangs before it even gets to Unraid. What I have discovered is that the USB drive is not seen as bootable by the motherboard. So the fix:


  • I do is to remove the USB drive
  • go to another computer, double click the "makebootable.bat" file which runs fine
  • Re-insert the USB device
  • Restart the system
  • Bam! it sees the USB as bootable and everything functions normally


I am posting this for others to find or maybe there is some strangeness with my hardware. I have had this issue regardless of the Unraid version so I am not sure what would cause this behavior.
