Where to begin. I had high hopes for this after watching this demo video of the isostick:
This little device doesn't do any of that. I've had it less than 12 hours and it simply won't work, even after the following.
The isostick doesn't show up as a CDROM in any bios boot menu, only "ELEGANT ISOSTICK FLASH 1.30" appears.
I have tried all of the available firmwares listed in the "isostick updater" in both read-only and read-write mode by using the switch on the side.
I have tried "Load ISO" from the ISO Manager r39 under Windows, which mounts an iso on the virtual cd rom drive in windows, but that optical drive won't appear in a boot menu at any bios boot option menu.
Speaking of windows I've tried this under Win 7 and Win 8 on three dells, two HPs, and an IBM in a christmas tree.
I have formatted using the HP usb format utility, rufus, fat32format and it's brother guiformat, gparted under linux and format F: /fs:fat32 /q /x under the windows command line. Followed other forum posts about unplugging optical drives under Dell and HP, moving the USB booting up to the top of the boot order list...
I've tried a 64GB, 16GB, and 4GB MicroSD cards on verified booting debian linux netinst ISOs.
Nothing works, and I've exhausted about 3 hours of my evening hoping there was some obscure setting/utility/post that was missed which would solve my problem.
Is there a beta firmware somewhere to download and try out? Are there any other options?
