  1. USB storage device not showing in boot menu. Please help


    My hard drive on my Dell laptop crashed and burned. It's not recoverable whatsoever.
    I installed a new hard drive and I'm using a flash drive to reinstall Windows. My issue is when I go F12 to select Boot Device it's not there.
    If I go to F2 setup it shows USB Storage Device and I set it as the First Boot Device then save and exit. Then when I Boot the laptop nothing happens. So I go back to F12 and the USB storage Device option still isn't there but it still appears in F2 setup.

    How do I fix this? Also my laptop will not Boot into Command Prompt. So formatting the old way is not an option.

    :)

    Help with USB Boot Image

    Yes, I checked the box and showed it the folder where I unzipped the USB Image file. And then it started formatting the USB memory. Then after it completed I copied the rest of the files from the zip file over to the memory stick. Then tried to boot computer to the USB device. After restarting I press F12 to enter the boot menu and select USB Device from the list and it reads the USB memory cause the green light flashes but I get the Non-system disk error message.

    Help with USB Boot Image

    I am trying to boot from my USB flash drive. I followed the instructions step for step that are in the article on this website. I downloaded the HP program and the USB Image zip file. I ran the HP flash program and pointed it to the folder where I unzipped the USB Image files to. I then copied all the files over to the USB memory stick as instructed. When I restart my computer and press F12 to go to the boot menu I have 3 options: SATA hard drive, CD-ROM drive, or USB Device. So I choose USB device and when it reads the USB memory stick all I get is the error "Non-system disk, replace and hit any key" Its like the USB memory is missing some system files or it doesnt have the master boot record or something. Somebody please HELP!!! I want to flash the bios in a new video card and I have to boot to DOS and I dont have a floppy drive and I have Win XP so a USB boot is probably the best option I have.

    USB Device Not Recognized (Malfunctioned)

    Just had this problem recently, a cmos clear corrected it. One item you can check to see is if the bios recognizes anything by loading its "boot from" menu and checking for any USB mass storage listed.
