Can the P5N-D boot from a USB Drive?

The drive shows up fine in Windows and in Linux, but I cannot find it in Bios or via the boot menu. All that shows up in the Removable Drive menu is the floppy drive.

Can this mobo not boot a USB Drive?

I have the latest bios.

Hi S..

With most all Asus boards, tapping F8 at power on will bring up a boot device choice menu...  Try that and see if the USB device is listed there...

Ok first make your USB stick bootable, you can find the info here:

http://www.filefactory.com/file/af0e5bh/n/HP_USB_Disk_Storage_Format_Tool_2_18_rar

http://www.bootdisk.com/

Format the USBStick to Fat32 and not with NTFS.



Go to your Bios then go to Boot, then go to Hard Disk Drives.

There you will see your USB Stick, and put your USB Stick on 1. , and then press F10 and hit [YES].

Now he will start from your USB Stick.

Hi S..

Try A's suggestion but generally, if a device doesn't show in the boot device choice menu, it can not become bootable.  The only other thing you might try is to format it NTFS...

If you want to update your Bios with a USB Stick you must Format your USB Stick to Fat32,
If you Format him to NTFS, the Bios in  EZ flash will not see him, so meaby it's the same with
making your USB Stick bootlbe, and set your USB Stick as first Boot device.

Sorry but i already sad that I CAN boot from a USB Stick.

And i also say that everyone can boot from ALL USB Sticks.

USB Stick is a USB Flash Drive.


First put your USB Stick (USB Flash Drive) in your Computer.

It's simple you download and use HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, and also
download a Bootdisk, and then you install the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool,
and start it up, then you set File system on FAT32 and then click on Quick Format,
then you click on Create a DOS startup disk, and then you look at your DOS
system files
, ant then you click on Start.

You can also make a Floppy bootable and take the files from your Floppy.

Now your USB Stick is bootable.


Also you can only make a USB Stick bootable, if you do it with FAT32, dos not
work with NTFS.
