View Full Version : [all variants] boot eee from external cd drive

Hi all,

I was wondering wether it is possible to boot an eee 901 from an external usb cd drive?
(for those who are unfamiliar with the eee, it has no internal cd drive) The cd drive is not listed in the bios boot menu.

anyone knows what to do?

I have a friend who does this all the time he said he set the bios to boot from usb.
to get into bios you have to press a key while booting ( I dont know which one)

Boot with the external drive attached and the disc inserted. When the Asus boot screen appears, tap the Esc key acouple of times and you will be presented with a menu where you can choose which drive to boot from.
