    Booting from USB drive

    hi all,
    i was reading a tutorial about 'booting from usb flash drive' and the link is http://www.weethet.nl/english/hardwa...musbstick.php. I tried the steps mentioned in the tutorial but got no success. Anyone from u friends has tried booting from usb flash drive if yes then plz send the related information about that, i will be grateful to u.

    Thanks

    (I m using WinXp and has kingston data traveller -128 mb)
    Excuse me, is there an airport nearby large enough for a private jet to land?

    does your bios have the option to boot from usb / removable devices?
    if not, then you wouldn't be able to do so... this is most of the time the biggest problem, making the usb-disk bootable isn't so hard itself, but having a mobo which supports their use is a different story.

    lepricaun: My bios has the option i.e. booting from removable devices (i think it refers to the USB drive)

    SDK: Thanks for the help, i will check that and will reply soon.

    then there might be an option too to enable or disable the usb. i have seen this before, that you can boot from usb, only when you enable the option in the bios. otherwise usb will work, but not as
    a boot device..
