Upgrading to a compatible BIOS that will allow USB boot.

I have an eMachines M2350 that has a BIOS that doesn't have the option to boot from a USB. The BIOS is a Phoenix v 0008. Is it possible to change upgrade to a BIOS compatible with the unit that will allow me to boot from a USB?

My emachines e350 won`t turn on it alweys says No bootable device--Please restart systam and I do that and it says it again


Check that you have not left a non-bootable CD, diskette, or DVD in the drives of your PC, nor have any USB devices plugged in that the system might be looking to try to boot from.

If the above check is clear, then go into the BIOS settings and check that your internal hard disk drive is set as the first boot device or is ahead of any other disk drives you may have installed.

You cannot connect computers to each other by just using a standard USB cable - it doesn't work that way.

If you still cannot boot from your internal hard drive, then you should consider downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD (which is a CD .ISO image) then burn this to a real CD and try booting from that media - you may have to select the CD as a boot device in your BIOS or if you get a boot options menu.

If you can boot the Hiren's CD ok, then your internal hard disk may have failed - you can test this with the DOS Programs of the Hiren's CD by selecting Hard Disk tools then selecting HDAT2 which will try to find any installed hard disks then allow you to test these and repair problems if possible.

My problem was i want to install xp on my new emachines 725 but it will get stuck on before the "press any key to boot from cd"..whay sopposeddly the problem and what is the best solution/s for it?


If you don't see the "press any key to boot from cd" text message, it means you should enter bios menu and set your CD/DVD as your first boot drive (F2 to enter bios and F8 to enter directly into boot menu to select first boot device)

How can i boot up from usb when my bios doesnt have usb option in boot menu


You may not see option for USB drive unless you have a USB drive connected when you go into the BIOS.

Otherwise, you will need to attach a floppy drive, and create a boot floppy that then loads drivers and such for the hardware, as well as the interface, and eventually, the drive itself.

I updated BIOs and now every thing is gone.


Okay, sounds like your BIOS upgrade went south. First off, re-install the original BIOS. Usually you back up the original before upgrading. Either that, or d/l the original BIOS from emachines.com. Once you've got the BIOS working, try starting the system. I'll need to know more to help you from there.

I need to reformat my emachines m2350.


Hello,

If you want to restore the machine to factory state I would suggest using the restore disk that came with it originally.

You possibly will need to go into your particular bios and set the boot option to start with the cd and then save and restart with the first cd in the drive. From that point you will need to follow on screen prompts to start the restore.

If you do not have the Cd's you can contact Emachines to order a replacement. You can contact them with the information below:
