I have just read up on this device and it sounds that you have a real good machine. From my experience, you need to know how to access the bios system, then goto boot section of the bios and just have USB boot only. Then attach a USB CD-rom and then boot to windows operating system on the CD

Vaio pcv-rs410 won't boot from usb

Have you changed the boot order in your bios? Many USB Keys are actually formatted as USB HDD or USB DVD. If you do have the USB device as 1st boot option ensure that the format is FAT32 and the software installed correctly (grub loader or windows boot image). Many sites such as Major Geeks will offer Optical Disc->USB boot conversion tools which make this a much easier process.

You can't format the active drive / partition within itself. It's like throwing away your clothes while you are wearing them in public. You just can't do it. Sorry, that's the only analogy that came to mind.

You format it with a boot disk like, an OS installation disc, USB drive with an OS installation, or a boot disc you found online (CD or USB).

If you have none of those, boot to command prompt by pressing F8 during boot. When you get there C:\ Type format c: Thats it. No going back, so make sure you saved and backed up your documents. You also need a way to install an OS, if you intend to do so.

I am trying to image a gateway e-2000 via a USB thumb drive. The system will not boot from the drive. I have USB boot set to enabled.

What process did you use? You need to make sure that the USB is formatted clean via FAT32 by right-clicking the drive and formatting it. Do not choose the quick format, and let it sit. Go watch some TV or something and then come back depending on how much data is on there. Then you can extract your ISO from the Original Windows 7/Xp/VISTA or the recovery Disc from Gateway to the Flash drive and reboot. Make sure in the BIOS (by hitting f2 when the splash logo appears) that you go to boot management and only select that the flash drive is the boot device or external device. Then when it boots up, and starts installing, the first time it restarts it will keep rebooting unless you remove the flash drive because the first time around it installs the image to the hard drive. Then re-plug the flash drive back in to keep the installation going only AFTER the first restart, then don't forget to go back to your bios and change your boot priority to the hard drive.

I have got a 2gb scan disk memory card i cant access it or format

Hello Friend,
Here is a method to try:

  1. Backup all data from your hard drive to another hard drive or CDs or DVDs.
  2. Turn off your computer.
  3. Insert the USB drive to a USB port.
  4. Turn on your computer.
  5. Hit the F8 key when prompted to get to your system bios. Some computers required the Delete key or F2 instead of F8. There should be a note on the screen that specifies the key.
  6. Navigate your bios (usually using your cursor keys) to boot from CD drive first. Save and exit.
  7. Insert your operating system disc aka Operating System Restore disc. Your computer should restart. If not, restart it yourself.
  8. Follow the instructions for installing your operating system. When the option to select which drives to format comes, you should be able to see your USB disk in the list.
  9. Format the disk with FAT32 for Win98 or previous. Format with NTFS for anything after e.g. NT, 2000, XP etc.
  10. Depending on your options, you may be able to opt out of the operating system install at this point. If it was running well beforehand and you can, leave your other drives alone and quit the re-installation.
  11. Reset the computer to boot from the disc drive the operating system is on instead of the CD drive as before. You should have your working flash drive detecting and usable now in windows.
  12. If you didn't get the option to opt out of the re-installation, continue to follow the instructions onscreen and complete the re-installation, formatting whatever drives are required. Note: Do not try to install your operating system onto your USB disk drive. Also be cautious when formatting to keep in mind all data could be lost.
Best Regards,

Boot block compatible ver.024 Please do not insert disc into cd-rom or floppy drive if you want to recovery with an usb device bad bios checksum.

Bad BIOS checksum: the software on a chip on the motherboard has become corrupted.

Sometimes, you can find a "BIOS update" on the manufacturer's web-site, so that the contents of that chip can be refreshed,
i.e., by booting from a diskette (or from a USB memory-stick) that contains the replacement software.

Contact a qualified technician, and pay them for 1 hour of labour.
Or, replace the motherboard.

How do i put the info from restore disc onto flash drive

Before you start you will need the following:
1. Download & Run WinSetupFrom USB-0.1.1.

2. Complete the setup. The program will start automatically once you have finished.

3. Plug your pen drive into the computer and backup anything important from it as we are going to format it.
4. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: click Refresh next the USB selection box. The USB pen you have just plugged in should now be visible in the drop down menu. Select it.

5. Insert your XP CD or mount an XP CD Image.
6. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: click Browse, next to the Windows 2000/XP/2003 Source box, and navigate to the location of the XP Install CD.

7. Now click the PE2USB button.

8. Now Tick the Enable Disk Format box under Format Options and Tick Quick Format and Enable LBA (FAT16X). Also make sure that Enable File Copy is not ticked.

9. Click Start. Click Yes when the pop up asks if you wish to continue. Click Yes again when the pop up asks you if you are sure you wish to continue. When you get the Completed successfully message click OK and close PEtoUSB.
10. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: Click GO. The Program will now create a bootable windows XP install on your USB pen drive.
11. Click agree to the “SYSINTERNALS SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS” pop up.
12. Click OK to the “This is Important” pop up.
13. The creation process is now complete: Take the newly formatted USB Pen and place it in the USB port of the target computer and turn it on.
NOTE: You must now read carefully what pops up on the screen as it will provide you with the hot-key (keyboard shortcut key) that, when pressed, triggers access to the BIOS. It is usually something like F1, F2, Delete or Escape.
14. Navigate the BIOS with the keyboard and find the section that contains your boot devices. With your USB drive plugged in, the USB drive should be listed. If it isn’t, your system might not support booting from USB.
15. Assuming that it is supported (as is the case with virtually all modern hardware), promote your USB drive to the primary boot device.
16. Exit from the BIOS configuration, saving all changes.
17. The computer will now reboot. Assuming that you have successfully compiled the bootable USB XP install and that you have successfully selected the USB device to be booted first in the bios a screen should appear which reads Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup – First and Second Parts . Press Enter. You will now be presented with 2 options. Select Option 1 (first part) for the first stage of the installation process.
18. When the first stage setup completes and system reboots select Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup – First and Second Parts, then Option 2 (second part) for the second stage of the setup.

Hi matthewbugbe,

I think what that means is it does not recognize your hard drive. If you are trying to install Windows 98 you should format your drive first.
