It makes you wonder what they wrote wrong in the previous firmware to cause that kind of strange result?

IIRC Western Digital had a similar bug in their Velociraptors and whatnot... it's the power-on counter or something really stupid. *sigh*

The W520 has USB 3.0 ports right? If so, have you tried with the USB 2.0 port(s)?

Interesting, let me play around with ours... are you forcing it to boot from USB or waiting for it to find it?

I pressed the blue thinkpad button, then choose to boot from the "Corsair Voyager" that showed, should I just change my boot order and let it find it auto?

Edit: Letting it boot itself to the USB didnt help, so tomorrow its dvd burning time (Not using them for anything else anyway)

Don't waste DVDs...think about the environment! ;) Have you tried redowloading the ISO/files with a different browser? The files could have been corrupted...

Also there are some suggestions in this Lenovo thread:

See message 1 and 7. Don't know how similar the Thinkpad and ThinkCentre BIOSes are but it is worth a try if you have time(other people might be having the same issue).
