    If you have another USB drive, then test that the motherboard can boot from a USB by using a linux liveCD. If the system can boot from that then you know the issue is your Windows USB drive and not the USB config on your motherboard.

    1. download the ISO from here: https://www.archlinux.org/download/
    2. plug in a USB drive
    3. write ISO to USB:
    Code:
    dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync
    If you are doing so under Windows then follow steps outlined here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...dia#In_Windows

    4. Attempt to boot from archlinux USB.

    Are you asking for a link to a version of Linux which is supported on the Z87 Extreme4? I doubt there is any official support for Linux, but honestly I would say the same for Windows (is there official support for Windows from either ASRock or Microsoft?) . But official support is way overrated... the best support is community support found on forums like this and elsewhere (depending on the type of issue you have).
