Common BIOS settings for USB booting
How to Access BIOS: computer and motherboard manufacturers and BIOS suppliers use varying keyboard keys that can be pressed
during system post to access system BIOS. The following list presents some keyboard key combinations that have been known to work.
Newer BIOS Boot Menu: Many newer computers detect the USB device as a hard drive (USB-HDD0). In which case, you can press a
specific key (F2, F10, F11 or ESC) during system post to access the "Boot Menu". Select your USB DISK from the Boot Menu and
resume startup.

1. Advanced / AHCI Mode Control: selecionar MANUAL
SAMSUNG
2. Advanced / AHCI Mode Control / Set AHCI Mode: selecionar ENABLED
ASUS
1. Advanced / SATA Mode Selection: selecionar AHCI
Older BIOS boot options: Possibly you will need to make the system detect and boot your USB device by changing settings in the BIOS:
USB-HDD “Preferred boot method”, USB-ZIP “May or may not work”, USB-FDD “Unsupported”
Tips:
 If your BIOS lists the USB memory stick as a hard drive, you should select it as the 1st boot device.
 Remove other USB boot options from the boot priority list when attempting to boot from USB-ZIP or USB-HDD to avoid conflicting.
 Intel-based Macs support starting from an USB device's volume: press and hold the Option key to access Startup Manager.
- On a MacBook Air, the computer may shutdown automatically as a preventive measure if a USB device with issues is
connected, or if the USB port on the MacBook Air itself is damaged.
- If you use Boot Camp, you may not be able to boot natively into supported versions of Microsoft Windows XP or
Windows Vista operating systems installed on external USB hard drive.
 If the USB isn’t detected try another port or use BOOT CD (same procedure).

If you're using an external USB hub with several connected USB devices, the external USB storage device you wish to start from may not be

USB ports may not supply enough power to some external USB hard drives.
