    I have a ASUS P5B Deluxe motherboard and I was wondering if it is possible to boot from a USB Memory Stick. I have tried looking in the bios for something like a "boot from USB" setting but can't find anything. On my old intel board there was this option but I can't see it on my new ASUS board.

    Can anyone help?

    If you mobo does not support usb booting, then no.
    I do believe it is possible with Linux though

    Sorry mate...I've just read through the manual from HERE, and I can't see anywhere that it will enable booting from USB.(n)
