I have removed the DVD drive and only connected the HDD and the USB. The USB is only getting recognised through a 3.0 port. Also, if the USB is plugged in the back 3.0 port, the installation seems to get stuck at the logo stage. Can someone help with the bios settings, in case it helps. Currently the USB settings are
Legacy USB Support - Enabled (Options- Enabled, Disabled, Auto)
Legacy USB3.0 Support - Enabled (Options- Enabled, Disabled)
EHCI Handoff - Enabled (Options- Enabled, Disabled)
If connected through the front port, the one which came with the case, then the installation progresses but gets stuck at the same place. I have not been able to use the file from the link sent by Golden. However, I had tried another DVD from another source and had faced the same issue, so i am not too hopeful on the problem getting resolved by using another iso.
