✔ Best Answer
Usually when you boot up there will a message on the screen - text format - telling you what to press to enter setup or similar.

Including the make and model of computer is always useful when posting a call for help...

See CMOS & BIOS definitions:

From the standpoint of the question you are asking treat them as if they are the same thing.

Yeah it sounds like you're already in cmos/bios setup. Changing a setting should be fairly obvious but will vary with bios version and manufacturer. If you can't figure it out you should consult the manual for your system or motherboard.

You still haven't posted the make and model of your computer. It may be that you have an older computer and it doesn't have the option to boot from a USB drive.

AND/OR if yours is like mine and you haven't booted with the pen drive inserted yet thinking the option can be shown otherwise, you have another think coming. I have to insert the drive with power off first, then attempt to boot, enter the setup screens and there I have a new display showing the pen drive to boot from. No pen drive inserted first, you get no choice of it.

When a computer is assembled from parts then the make and model number of the motherboard is required to find out about the BIOS arrangements.

When you boot up what information is shown on the screen before the operating system boots up?

There is a PVM7 and a PVM7 pro Ver 1.0 motherboard made by Kobian/Mercury:

One of those must be what he's got.

From info given in #15 see this:

Although the above is not quite your motherboard I would think entering BIOS is likely to be the same as given on page 19, which is this:

Every time you start your computer, a message appears on the screen before the operating system loading that prompts you to “Hit <DEL> if you want to run SETUP”. Whenever you see this message, press the Delete key, and the Main menu page of the Setup Utility appears on your monitor.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Actually sir, the main problem is that after making the pen drive bootable using "solution rar." it is not showing either in 1st boot device nor in 2nd boot device. it is showing hard disk and ram. why my pen drive is not showing in boot devices. Is there any other way to make pen drive bootable for installation of windows xp pro or can it be possible using command prompt to make pen drive bootable to list the pen drive in boot devices to proceed further.

To boot from USB a bios has to have that ability already built-in. If it can't boot from USB then the boot process isn't going to even look at the USB port to see if you stuck something bootable in it.

From your description of the details I'm thinking your computer can't boot from USB but to make sure you may want to download the manual which it looks like Derek has linked to above.

Oh, is it one of the PVM7 models?

OK, there is the PLoP method of booting from USB when the bios won't allow it:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/1682...

Basically it installs some system files on another disk and some drivers and whatever. Then it boots from that disk, loads the drivers and boots the rest of the way from the USB device.

You might try that or maybe give up and just get an XP cd.
