      Everything worked until I had to open checkra1n. When I open the boot menu and click F12, it came up with a message saying to that the USB wasn’t available and to try and connect it again! How can I fix this if the USB is already in? My laptop is a HP Pro x2, could that be the reason?
      Please get back to me soon,
      Thanks, Scott

        Does the issue also occur if you tick “Safe Mode” in the checkra1n options?

      I get welcome to checkn1x.
      Then I press Alt+F2 and I get no response. The screen just shows a blinking underscore and the same welcome message. I would appreciate any help you can give.
      Thanks, John
