    I have á EP35c-DS3R mobo and want to boot from USB-stick.
    In the bios I have set the following;

    1 USB-HDD
    2 CD-rom
    3 HDD

    It won't boot from the stick, when I call the bootmenu with F12 I don't
    see the stick in the list, so I can't boot from it.
    The only way to boot from the stick is to go into the bios, and set in
    "harddisk bootpriority" the stick as number 1 where I can see it with
    its name.

    This procedure is very unhandy, how can I boot from the stick without
    first going into the bios?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have the same MB.

    I do so: nothing with bios, F12, select harddisk, then there is a menu
    with my usb-harddisk among others.

    The usb harddisk is 2.5" in usb-cabinet.

    best regards

    And I meant: I have a bios booting setup for harddisk, cdrom, floppy.

    But I don't make any change on it (for usb). Just F12 and menu use for

    The same with e-sata that I prefer to use over usb. I have 2 e-sata
    boxes: one with Vista, and one with Ubuntu/Mandriva in a boot menu.
    Then XP Pro on the harddisk in the cabinet.

    Vista brings nothing new to me. I prefer Linux, and love compiz. But
    homebanking with my banque is not for linux, unfortunately. They
    should write login with java, and not activeX.

    best regards
