set Intel virtualisation off and choose boot from USB in UEFI (if available) manually.

I have had success booting image from an even older laptop, a core 2 duo system. So, I dont see how your laptop cant boot. Use a different USB port if its available (USB 2.0 is preferable)

Virtualization is off. No success.
Tried on all 3 of the ports and no luck (all of them are USB 2.0). Flash drive is USB 3.0.
I'm almost 100% sure that the BIOS is locked and I'm not able to boot because of this. Will look around the web for a way to unlock/flash/mod it.

I've just tested the flash on my wife's Lenovo laptop and it booted without issues.

You've done enough, dude! ;)

Thanks for everything.

Will update the thread once I have progressed with the BIOS.

Cheers! :guitar :guitar :guitar
