Having problems with your Sony VAIO FR130 Notebook ?

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


Answers :

I just encountered the same problem with an HP Compaq nx9020. There is no "USB boot" option on the bios and the CD drive refuses to read my windows install DVD. The solution is to plug in the bootable USB drive, the power the machine on and go to "boot order". If you should have a plus sign next to "HDD", and if you expand it your USB drive should be there. Move it up so it's above your HDD and save the changes. It should now boot from USB, it worked for me!
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.
