Hog 4 console not booting to USB when attempting full install


When attempting a full install the console boots to the show launch screen instead of entering into the full install enviroment. 

Description/Explanation of Issue

It is possible that the 1st boot device is the internal hard drive instead of USB.


  1. Start with the console powered off and with a USB keyboard attached. Power console on while holding the DELETE key on the USB keyboard.
  2. When the BIOS menu appears use the keyboard to navigate to date and times settings and set the correct date and time.
  3. Navigate to the exit and save menu and select the "Restore Defaults" option. Then select "Save and Exit". The console will now reboot and you will be able to try the restore again.
