  1. Plop boot manager works fine for unsupported usb boot on MBs, and its very simple to use.

  2. I need help getting my monitor to display anything. I have it hooked up but it fails to display any image.

  3. DataTraveler USB keys are good for making bootable USB keys. I do this all the time for touchscreen terminals that don't have CD drives. Using these keys, I've only ever had problems with older BIOSes that have no USB boot support at all. HTH.

  4. You need to format the usb drive and then put the OS in. This was posted on my birthday toi

  5. i have always had luck with the corsair flash voyager series of usb drives. although i will be trying sandisk

  6. Only way I can get USB to boot on a virgin windows xp computer is if I change the boot order and send USB as the first boot location (before, floppy, disk, etc) in the BIOS. I do not have to do that with windows 7 and 8 devices. I run backtrack on a 14 year old computer lol

  7. thanks save me $60
