    Compaq/HP NC8000 - I can not get it to boot from a USB floppy drive
    that is known good. Our HP desktops will boot to it (d530 small fom
    desktop) but the NC8000's will not. Looked at BIOS settings - did not
    seem to be anything there to correct this. Any ideas? Myabe this is
    just a BIOS limitation on these units...

    maybe... have a look in the BIOS and check whether "usb legacy support" is
    both available and enabled...
    good luck.

    All my life I said I wanted to be someone...I can see now that I
    should have been more specific.

    I appreciate the response - I did try that, and still no luck. I
    guess I may have to purchase a floppy drive for the media bay in order
    to boot to a floppy. That seems strange, but I guess the bios was not
    designed for USB floppy booting.
