Flash bios medion updating usb

10-Sep-2020 18:51

I noticed in the HP USB program that the drive is named 0.00 (for some reason) I found this in the BIOS as a boot option (it was there before but I completely overlooked it, because I looked for something related to USB). Then finally go to the boot options tab, and enable "CSM" (Compatibility System Module). You’ve always got a trusty bootable USB flash drive with you to solve computer problems, but what if a PC’s BIOS won’t let you boot from USB?

Put PLo P on a CD PLo P comes as a zip file, which includes a variety of files.

If done correctly, PLo P Boot Manager will load up, giving a number of boot options. This is a pretty geeky way to get your PC to boot from a USB…provided your computer still has a floppy drive.

Of course if your BIOS won’t boot from a USB it probably has one…or you really need to update it.

If the device is bootable, it should appear in the Boot Devices list. I realize you may fear BIOS updating, but a specific BIOS version may be a requirement for the vbios update procedure to suceed. Now hold the "esc" key as you power on the machine and the boot device option screen will appear, and your usb drive should now be able to be selected and booted from.

EDIT: I checked and see BIOS 211 or later is recommended, so you're OK there. After your probing I started having doubts so I trying making the bootable flash drive again. Now Ill update drivers and hope VSOD will be a forgotten memory. I needed the answer to the question and now a straight answer exists so far for this model. First turn on the machine while holding down the "del" key. Then go over to the security tab, and disable "secure boot" and any other related security that you should assume you really don't need. this may or may not work for other models, but for some of the new machines with windows 8, this should apply accross the board.

Burn or to a CD and then skip to the “booting PLo P Boot Manager” section.
