I have a Biostar GeForce6100-M9 motherboard. I am trying to boot my PC from a USB flash drive (aka pen drive, thumb drive, etc...). In every instance, the BIOS recognizes the USB drive, I set the boot order to boot off the drive, and it will hang at "Verifying DMI Pool Data..." I have tried this with three different devices: -SanDisk U3 Cruzer Mico 2GB* -SanDisk Shoot&Store Memory Card 128MB -PNY Attache 4GB *Obviously, the U3 system was not installed on the drive at the time, since I refformatted the drive while making it bootable. I have also tried numerous methods and programs while making it bootable (including HP Drive Key Bott Util. and PE2USB) I have tried booting WinXp from all three drives, and I have installed versions of DOS, NTFS4DOS, and BartPE on them. I get the same problem every time, since I know that at the least, it is possible to boot from the PNY drive, I also know that both the programs mentioned above (HP Drive Key Boot Util. and PE2USB) work. This rules out the possibility that I made a mistake when making one the drives bootable. Also, I have updated the BIOS, to no avail, I still get thesame results. Concerning the motherboard, I have read in reviews that people could not get this particular model to boot from USB, but I figure it should be possible.
