Thank you for attempting to find a solution to my problem. Unfortunately, I was not able to find the correct settings to allow me to boot from usbkey. I added additional information to my problem. Can you think of anything else to help me?
this trick will allow u to use ur usb stick as a key to boot into windows . if someone tries to start the
computer without the usb stick , it will display boot errors. before we begin , let me tell u that playing
with the bios and boot files of ur computer may result in u not being able to boot into ur windows partition ; so continue at ur own risk!
step1: unhide hidden and protected files: go to tools > options > view , check show hidden files and uncheck hide protected system files
step2: from the drive where windows is installed copy the files boot.ini,ntdlr and ntdetect.com to ur usb stick
step3: now we need to go into ur bios , so restart and keep jabbing (F8 or DEL) as soon as the pc starts
step4: once the bios , enable usb drive as the first boot device u might have to enable usb legacy support on older bioses
step5: restart ur pc if all goes well , u should be able to log into windows if not, then unplug the usb stick , return to the bios and change the first boot device to ur hard disk drive and repeat the steps above
step6: once u r logged into windows , go to ur windows drive and rename boot.ini to boot.bak
step7: to check if u have setup everything correctly , eject usb and reboot the pc u should get error message on the screen such as "invalid boot.ini" or " windows could not start "
step8:incase windows does not load , use ur windows recovery disk by followin the steps at http://tinyurl.com/s9sd2

Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.
If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS
lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password
in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being
entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a
sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.
Password attempts There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it. Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint
in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not
set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to
reformat the drive. Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.
It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.
The HD4650 is a power hungry card. If the entiresystem refuses to start, then the power supply may not be able to run the configuration. Of course, this is just a possibility, or your card is just damaged.
The board has two 240-pin DIMM sockets and supports the following memory features:
1.8 V (only) DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported.
2 GB maximum total system memory
Minimum total system memory: 128 MB
Serial Presence Detect
DDR2 533 or DDR2 400 SDRAM DIMMs
Note To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance. If non-SPD memory is installed, the BIOS will attempt to correctly configure the memory settings, but performance and reliability may be impacted or the DIMMs may not function under the determined frequency.
First make sure that the DVD drive is the only drive listed to be booted from. Make it the first and only drive. Unfortunately most motherboards have an issue with booting from a SATA DVD drive. Secondly turn off Sata RAID if you have it. If this doesn't work then your motherboard isn't capable. It is too old and from what I can tell from the manual it is running SATA 986p, which is only 150mp/s thats not even Sata 1.5. Early Sata controllers couldn't do installations of OSs at all.
some pentiums are locked at the set speed but there are no jumpers you have to alter the settings are in the bios eg the timing and there may be step ups to increase the processor speed, but remember you get far faster response times by fitting more memory as overclocking can cause overheating and crashes.
