Disabling USB Boot


Disabling USB Boot prevents booting another operating system, which could be used to manipulate or (even accidentally) overwrite IGEL OS on mass storage.

Instructions for IGEL UD LX Devices

USB Boot is disabled in the factory settings on IGEL UD LX devices. If you want to disable it at any time in the devices lifetime, follow the instructions given here:

  1. Hold down the Del key (F2 key for UD2) while the system is booting.

    The UEFI menu opens.

  2. Use the arrow and return keys to go to SCU.
  3. Optional: Enter the UEFI password (if one is set).

    The Setup Utility opens.

  4. Go to Boot.
  5. Set USB Boot to Disabled.
  6. Press F10
  7. Confirm Exit Saving Changes?
  8. The device boots.

    Additionally, set a UEFI Password so the boot settings cannot be changed back.
