"cdrom is powered and the booting sequence is ok"

In other words, USB is one of the boot options & you have it listed 1st in the boot order?

Floppy, usb flash, pcmcia, internal cd, dunno might be more.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Might be USB floppy, USB CD, USB hard drive. Those are MY choices, along with all the others.

...sometimes the bios won't see it untill the usb device is plugged in and then you boot-up to bios and select it!

... depends on the make .... Toshiba's are the worst!
