Sad to say your model "Sharp pc ax40 Series laptop" does not support the "Boot from USB devices" options from the Bios.

It uses the "Floppy Drive 3.5" 1.44 MB floppy - External" ie portable FDD booting options.

Hope it helps.

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.

No usb boot setting in available in Asus laptop aptio utility version 2.01.1


You can't because the usb root hub won't work until the PC boots. You'll never get the pc to boot from the usb drive with that bios version.

Boot Menu
Nope. No option for booting from USB
1. Floppy Disk Drive
2. Drive0: (Harddrive)
3) CD/DVD Drive
4) NETWORK
5.
6.
7.
Excluded from Boot Order:
USB MEMORY
USB Harddrive

Back before USB thumbdrives (Flash Drive, whatever), came on the scene; the Floppy Drive was used. Then the Optical Drive came out.
(CD/DVD drive)

Transfer the boot data to floppy disks, or a CD/DVD disk.
Make sure they are bootable..........

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.

I have a netbook that has crashed on me. I have tried to reboot from a USB flash drive but it keeps saying "LBA not available" & "CHS not available". Does anyone know how to get...


see if there are some BIOS updates that the non booting laptop can get. This sounds like a BIOS issue since the USB works just fine on another laptop. Also, you may want to check for the BIOS bootup settings, and enable USB booting and also see for any auto-detection rules in BIOS that are stopping the USB key from being registered properly.
