    Hey again.

    You will prabally need touse startup disk and have some type of usb support.
    Have you tried to use a normal cd rom support?
    Does the cmos reconize the cd-rom?(as a boot option or anything?)

    Normal cd support? Like a driver? No, not a normal dirver (for win). Triede a couple for "usb" drivers..... doesn't work, I think.
    And ad a boot option? On my normal pc (stadionære), it says something like "hit delete for bios" - but doesn't here. If I try, the options I get is "test" - and here I can test the usb (and it says "ok") - but to boot on it??? Noknow.... help me more please
