    Alright, so I've been trying to burn a arch Linux variant (Apricity) to a USB. Sounds easy right? Well, it hasn't been for me. I have tried Rufus in all the configurations I have. I have set it to GPT UEFI, MBR UEFI, BIOS and UEFI. It doesn't want to boot and when it does it just restarts. I don't know what to do. Please help.

    What computer are you trying to boot the USB drive on? Did you disable secure boot in the bios?

    Try echer but I would add that the issue is most likely the Bios of your PC.
