I have a fairly old PC now (circa 2002) which has a ASUS A7V333 motherboard that doesn't support booting an operating system from a USB drive.

Is there any program I can use that would load from floppy or CD that would allow me to boot an OS from a USB hard drive?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it can't be done. All of the utilities I've ever seen out there specify the bios "must support boot from USB". Then you use the utilities to add the required functions to a usb drive.

What vendor and revision bios are you using? A BIOS upgrade may solve your problem.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
