    Thanks for reply...but it didn't help.

    Now the question is:
    Can a Toshiba Satellite laptop boot from USB pendrive?

    (Sorry for my poor english)

    Hiyas,
    Answer NO, reason, USB is not supported as a bootable device since there are no working drivers that supports boot from BIOS
