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.

Forgot admin password cannot how to reset admin password gateway lt2104u


Look on Ebay for a password reset disk. Many vendors on Ebay sell a bootable "linux" disk that you boot from and then you can edit your password file on Windows. I have versions for XP/ Vista.Windows 7.

Be sure to get one that works for your version of windows. You must set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive first for this to work. About $5 to $10 for the reset disk.

I cant format my C400 with a pen drive


If you're tryng to format the HDD on a Dell latitude C400 (or install an OS), this thing will not boot to any USB devices (flash drives, pen drives, external USB cd-rom drives, etc.) - just ain't gonna happen since the BIOS doesn't support such boot devices. The only thing it'll boot to is (1) docking station, and (2) a Media Bay optical drive.

Acer aspire one 1640Z XP BIOS RECOVERY WON'T READ USB WITH BIOS


if I understood correctly you have the recovery software loaded on a stick flash drive and you want to boot from usb to restore the pc .....There are a few things that you have to know about to do that ...
first you have to go to bios and enable boot from another device ....other than hdd /cd or flopy ... for some elder bios this isnt even a choice ..or ..if it is ,,it will be as a sub options into the hdd...choice ..
another thing that you have to keep in mind ..is that you have to disable the other options to force it boot from this one ...or ....to press f8 on boot and manually choose the usm or the stick name that will appear on boot devices...
the most important thing is that if you already formatted the hdd it does notr have a usb driver loaded and that why willl not see the device ...also the device you are using to boot ...has to be specially formatted to be bootable ....this is made ussualy with a hp format tool ...and it is explained in more than one places on the net ...just look for making a boot-able stick (usb device)
in short ...make sure the sticvk is boot-able ...second the pc ha s teh capability to boot from another device ...and this is a feature that you already enabled like first boot device ...
than things will be easy ...it will ask you to press any key to boot from the usb ...and continue like an installation from the cd ...
if you cannot do it ...I recommend using a cd ..or an image that you will ***** in a virtual cd ...for those that do not have cd drive ( use daemon tool )

My 3660 does not recognise my DVD/CD write/rewrite theough the connections are all fine. Same too with my new Sony Walkman when plugged into any of my USB drives


Do any devices work in any USB ports on that laptop (Flash drive, mouse/wireless mouse, USB keyboard)?

USB support may be disabled in the BIOS.
Boot into the BIOS and check the built-ins and enable, if necessary.
(just in case, disable and then enable)

USB controller driver messed up:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
[Device Manager]
Look for any "marked" errors on devices
open the +USB Serial Bus Controllers
Pick a faulty one and "disable" then "enable" it.
If it still fails, then "Uninstall" it (Windows will find it and re-install it automatically.

That should do it.

"USB Device Not Recognized" - any usb device


1-Make sure you are using XP SP2. You probably are but just in case....

2-Unplug all USB devices

3-Uninstall any software for the devices you just unplugged

4-Reboot into safe mode and open the device manager. Make sure to choose the show hidden devices option

Note: Follow the order of removal exactly and this MUST be done in safe mode only!

5-Remove any entries for USB peripherals like scanners and printers

6-Remove any entries for HID devices or Combp USB devices

7-Remove all USB root hub entries

8-Remove all USB host controller entries

9-Reboot to normal mode, let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive.

If this didn't work then repeat steps 1-8.
Staying in safe mode, right click in the device manager and scan for hardware changes. Let Windows reset the USB stack and try your thumb drive again.

Also when doing any of this try and get a hold of another thumb drive and try it instead of yours. Your thumb drive could be the source of the trouble. We had similar issues we tracked down to a bad batch of Memorex thumb drives.
