Can anybody please tell me how to use the "new boot option" selection
in the BIOS?. I want to be able to boot from an external USB drive. I
have only 2 options, DVD and harddrive. There are 3 version numbers
shown on the Megatrends Bios page, V 2.01-1204, V BIOS V208 V211
and EC version 202d080001.

Thanks
Doug

You possibly have to assign a Drive letter to the USB drive?

Then select start drive

Thanks for the link. The drive is using an unassigned letter, G. I
changed the letter anyhow but it made no difference but your reply
caused me to go back into the BIOS and while looking for the USB drive
I found it by clicking on the hard drive option, it was listed as a
hardrive not as a USB drive. I was expecting a separate USB drive
listing.

Thanks for your reply.
Doug.
