# Known issues
## Tails fails to start a second time on some computers ([[!tails_ticket 16389]])
On some computers, after installing Tails to a USB stick,
Tails starts a first time but fails to start a second time. In some
cases, only BIOS (Legacy) was affected and the USB stick was not listed
in the Boot Menu.
We partially fix this issue in 3.14.1 but are still investigating it, so if it happens to you, please
report your findings by email to <>. Mention the
model of the computer and the USB stick. This mailing
list is [archived publicly](
To fix this issue:
1. Reinstall your USB stick using the same installation method.
1. Start Tails for the first time and [[set up an administration
1. Choose <span class="menuchoice">
<span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
<span class="guisubmenu">System Tools</span>&nbsp;▸
<span class="guimenuitem">Root Terminal</span>
</span> to open a <span class="application">Root Terminal</span>.
1. Execute the following command:
<p class="pre command">sgdisk --recompute-chs /dev/bilibop</p>
You can also test an experimental image:
1. [Download the *.img* file from our development
1. Install it using the same installation methods.
We don't provide any OpenPGP signature or other verification technique
for this test image. Please only use it for testing.
