No boot from USB pendrive - matsonic MS8137c

Hi all!
I'v got the Matsonic ms8137c motherboard, and I would like to use it as a file server with FreeNAS. It would be a nice thing if I can do a boot from a pendrive, and leave all the available disk space for my personal data.
I've enabled all the USB possibilities in the BIOS, when it boots it recognize the attached pendrive (already bootable), but at the end it says "Boot disk failure".
I tried all the USB ports and 2 different pendrives.
Is it possible to have a boot from an USB pendrive, somehow?
Thank you very much for your help.

    as I said, I checked all the possibilities in the BIOS, included the order of the boot and the devices. USB-HDD is the first, then USB-FDD and USB-ZIP. I tried also with USB-CDROM. Unfortunately nothing changed.
    Also, the pen drive is bootable, I tried in another PC where the USB boot is possible, since I have copied the files needed to boot it, and it works.
    It's just that the mother board seams not to recognize the USB bootable pen drive, although it recognizes that there is a pen drive attached and the pen drive is bootable itself.

    Thanks for your trying, but I'm still without solution. :(

    is the pendrive you want to boot from the first on the boot list in your bios? have you made your pendrive bootable?

Hello , my server mainboards fsb is stuck at 100mhz , the board can support to 133mhz , but i cant set that speed in the bios , the settings are greyed out. my cpu supports a max speed to 1500mhz but now...

It sounds like the system is set to "auto" at the moment, OR the memory speed will not support the 133mhz fsb speed, check the RAM and see what the speed rating is. Leave the CPU multiplier alone, that may well damage the cpu.

Too old???

Yes, it is time for a new motherboard. Socket A was nice in its day, but its day is long gone. You could get a decent combination package (motherboard & processor) that would triple your speed for under $100. Just add some new memory and you will be all set. Go for a name brand board, but I shy away from ECS.
