ASUS K42jr boot from pendrive

January 7, 2011 at 04:48:41
Specs: Windows 7 home x64, i5/430, 4GB
I am trying to use a USB pendrive to boot a linux app. I cannot find a setting in my BIOS where I can put a USB pendrive on top of the hierarchy. Can anyone experienced with the newer ASUS machines help?

That sounded like the cure... tried it and it still resorted to booting win7. ASUS E-pc's must be booting everything from dongles as they do not have any other real-world connections other than the net. How is their BIOS set up? there must be a relative way to set my heirarchy??? yaThink?

... try tapping <Esc> or <F4> @ bootup see the usb device listed?

... maybe even <F8> ??

That did work, then I also discovered that it sees my pendrive as a HDD; in HDD I reshuffled the heirarchy and I am now in business! Thanks to all for the speedy responses!
