Ze5170 not showing usb flash as boot option


1. The PC has to support booting from a USB flash/pen/key drive. There may be anywhere from 0-3 items to change in the BIOS to make this possible assuming your BIOS supports it. Some older bios's may refer to your flash drive as a USB floppy or USB zip.
2. The USB flash drive must support booting from it in general.
3. The flash drive must contain the boot/system files.
4. The flash drive must have bootsector area. This is done with special utilities.
5. References to "A:" drive lines in the autoexec.bat and/or config.sys files you copy to the drive after you make it bootable may result in errors.
6. There are several programs available if you do a Google search that will help you make your USB Flash Drive bootable as well.

I need boot my computer from usb. what I need?


Generally, you need a few things:

1. The PC has to support booting from a USB flash/pen/key drive. There may be anywhere from 1-3 items to change in the BIOS settings to make this possible assuming your BIOS supports it. Some BIOS's may refer to your flash drive as a USB floppy or USB zip. Of course there are exceptions.
2. The USB flash drive must support booting from it in general.
3. The flash drive must contain the boot/system files.
4. The flash drive must have bootsector area. This is done with special utilities.

Check out this comprehensive link to make a bootable USB / flash drive in your choice of several different Operating Systems.

Kingston Data Traveler 2.0 64 GB USB - file system corrupted - need to work on windows XP- Upon formatting the pen drive It shows that it has become a raw drive - wat is the file format for the USB to work...


Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.

My kingston 2 gb flash disk is not recognized, how can i fix it?


Please follow the below steps to fix your problem

1
Connect your flash drive to your computer using an available USB port. If your flash drive is not recognized, you'll usually receive an error that says "USB Device Not Recognized."

2
Click "Start" > "Control Panel" and open the system configuration by double-clicking the "System" icon.

3
Navigate to the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button to open the Device Manager.

4
Click the "+" next to "Disk Drives" and locate your USB flash drive. A question mark icon should be shown to the left of the label. Right-click the device name and select "Uninstall."

5
Open the "Action" menu at the top of the Device Manager and select "Scan for hardware changes." This will scan your PC for any new devices. Because you uninstalled the flash drive, it will be detected as a new device and the drivers will be reinstalled.

6
Click "Start" > "My Computer" and look for your flash drive. If this process was successful, your flash drive should now show up under My Computer as a storage disk.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

Hi, my system not working properly.


I don't think this is a BIOS problem. Sound more like you need to re-load windows and start from scratch. Make sure your USB is turned on in the BIOS.

Bought a new flash drive- 4gb, and can't seem to install it on my laptop. I have another another one that is older and had no problems with it. can someone help me with this?


San disk quality is not the best I have a whole heap of sandisk 2gb & 4gb cruzers that are all pooched. I have tried lots of different diagnostic software to try recover files from these things with not much success.

All I can suggest is to avoid that brand and never keep vital information on a flash drive that you done have backed up somewhere else

Sir,i want to know how to make a kingston usb pen drive bootable?


This only works IF your motherboard BIOS supports it. You may be able to FLASH your BIOS and upgrade to this functionality. Easy way to find out, go into BIOS and look for Boot Order or Boot device and see if USB Device is an option. If so, make it FIRST, CDROM 2d and HDD last (so you don't have to do this again) Save and exit.
Then go here and grab the instr: http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm
