Can the Toshiba Satellite 5105-S701 boot to a USB flash drive?

    I am able to boot off the included USB floppy drive by holding the 'U'
    key when I turn on the computer, but not my USB flash drive (which I am
    able to boot off of from my desktop).

    Is there something special I need to do for USB flash drives (that is
    maybe specific to this manufacturer/model)? Or is it just not possible?
