SOURCE: boot from usb

Sounds like the boot order menu is what you have. Set the boot order menu to try other devices before the hard drive. (Example: CD/DVD drive, floppy; if present, USB devices, hard drive). You should have a default key for accessing the boot menu (usually f11 or f12). Hit this key and choose the USB option. Make sure the device you want to boot to is already connected before you turn on the laptop.

It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

I want to boot from a external hd with win xp in a hp pavilion 1129la

FlashBoot is the easiest product available to build an external boot disk. They provide a free demo version that can test before you pay for the program. FlashBoot can load many different operating systems but the program can also use FreeDOS, which has no additional licensing fees. If you have limited computer experience, this is the way to go.

Hi, I've got a Toshiba Portege M205-S810 without CD-ROM drive. Only slots fro USB and SD Card. 1. How to boot up this tablet from SD card? SD card is empty. 2. How to make an image of my CD with Win XP...
If you want to use an external cd drive these are the ones that will work and only these..
The procedure is getting into BIOS settings (press F2 on start ) and on boot sector select the external drive as boot device )
If you want to boot from a SD card or USB memory stick ..than you have to make a boot-able one ..and from what I tried is kinda tricky to make a XP you might consider to install windows 7 if the Ram memory is at least 1 G
But if you want to try are some resources about how to make such a boot-able flash ..
here is for vista and 7 if you do nto have the cd drive ..use a virtual one like iso hunt
Here is an xp ..and the tools for making a boot-able stick carefully the instructions ..
it was made to install a asus eee which is also a non cd drive net-book
They recommend to select teh boot device on each restart ..I say to check the bios and see if the boot from usb is available and select it first boot device throughout the installation ..

My XP will not boot when my Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 drive is connected. It gets as far as showing the Pentium screen and stalls.

Its probably trying to boot from your external drive.

Go into your bios and reset your boot setting to HDD0 as your first boot device, Disk drive 0 second and floppy third, unless you want to boot from an external drive. That being the case select an appropriate order.

If the bios shows your external HDD as HDD0, then you have to work out which is the drive carrying the operating system and set that to your first boot device.

To get into the bios, watch the boot screen for a key to hit to enter setup, normally its the "DEL" key.

I am using HP DL380 G4 SERVER,cd rom drive is not working , thats why i connected external usb cd rom drive ,and i tried to bood 2003 server os , but failed, please help me................... if any...

Make sure the BIOS is fully updated from the HP website. Most DL3-series servers supported booting from an external USB cd, try F10 or F12 at boot in order to bring up a boot menu.
