The PE26x0 series was many server-line generations ago, thus booting from USB devices was not available at that time, thus it will not work today either. This includes USB based bootable devices (i.e. bootable USB key, DVD ROM..etc).


Even with the latest BIOS A21 for the PE2650, there is no support for bootable USB devices.

Free usb reboot


You might want to boot from a USB device, like an external hard drive or a flash drive, for many different reasons.
When you boot from a USB device, what you're actually doing is running your computer with the operating system that's installed on the USB device. When you start your computer normally, you're running with the operating system installed on your hard drive - Windows, Linux, etc.

How To Boot From a USB Device
Change the BIOS boot order so the USB device option is listed first. The BIOS is rarely setup this way by default.
If the USB boot option is not first in the boot order, your PC will start "normally" (i.e. boot from your hard drive) without even looking at any boot information that might be on your USB device.
Tip: The BIOS on most computers list the USB boot option as USB or Removable Devices but some confusingly list it as a Hard Drive option, so be sure to dig around if you're having trouble finding the right one to choose.
Note: After setting your USB device as the first boot device, your computer will check it for boot information each time your PC starts. Leaving your computer configured this way shouldn't cause problems unless you plan on leaving the bootable USB device attached all the time.
Attach the USB device to your computer via any available USB port.
Note: Creating a bootable flash drive or configuring an external hard drive as bootable is a task in itself. Chances are you made it to my instructions here because you know whatever USB device you have should be bootable after properly configuring BIOS.

  • Restart your computer.
  • Watch for a Press any key to boot from external device... message.
  • On some bootable devices, you may be prompted with a message to press a key before the computer will boot to the flash drive or other USB device.
  • If you do nothing, your computer will check for boot information on the next boot device in the list in BIOS (see Step 1) which will probably be your hard drive.
Note: Most of the time when trying to boot to a USB device there is no key-press prompt. The USB boot process usually starts immediately.

  • Your computer should now boot from the flash drive or USB based external hard drive.

Hp compaq nc6230 boot from usb


Most PCs will not boot usb, unless the CMOS setup configure supports that device as a boot choice on cold start. F10 or does allow whatever key strokes needed before windows logo, will get you into CMOS config. Then look for boot, sequence and see if the usb is an option, if not, no hope for usb boot.

If CMOS config does allow usb boot AND your usb device has been set up to be a boot device,(and you saved the cmos changes) with the proper files...
shut dow, put in usb and cold start.... save

Hirens


Go to the BIOS settings and then Boot (start up) order and make the USB device the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
If the USB is not listed then your laptop cannot boot up from an USB memory stick.
To make a Hirens USB boot memory stick copy the Hirens files onto the USB memory stick. Then you can boot up Hirens with the USB memory stick.
