Does this motherboard support USB booting?

Hi ,

Im not familiar with that motherboard, but you should confirm that motherboard supports USB booting, In the bios set the USB device (usb hard drive) as the 1st boot device and see if that helps.
you may also have a bios setting to enable/disable booting from usb, make sure thats enabled.

So the Motherboard may not be able to boot usb, but i have another option that may help

Sounds like you found why it will nto boot from the USB, seems the motherboard was made prior to the USB boot option being added in the bioses.

there is another way to get a pc to boot from usb, i use it for VMware
its called "Plop Boot Manager v5.0"

you can read about and obtain it from here http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager.html

basically you put this on a floppy or CD and boot from the cd/floppy then it adds the ability to boot to usb.

i hope that helps.
