[Discuss] Post issue with bootable linux

I have a guy with an older system
Core2 duo CPU
4GB ddr2 scramble

Dell motherboard
The problem is when I boot with a known good bootable Linux usb
Ubuntu, Fedora the system fails to post.
1. Dell logo comes up
2. Press F12 (boot) or F2 (setup) the light flashes on the usb and the
system is otherwise frozen.
3. Neither the setup nor boot menu come up

However, when I use a bootable gparted USB it comes up fine. When I go to
the boot menu and select the usb, it boots.
