Boot from External Drive

Discussion in 'Acer' started by David Vincent-Jones, Jun 27, 2007.

  1. Acer Travelmate 8100 with bios ver. 3F05

    Is it possible to boot up directly from an external USB drive. I am looking
    to use an external drive as a full image backup in case of disk failure.

    I am finding it a bit scary ( as Acer sugests) using the D: drive for that
    purpose.

    If there is an External USB option in boot order in BIOS, yes. If not, . .
