    Hi,
    I have a legacy intel pc thats chugging along pretty well. I currently dont have the option to boot from USB. However it seems a later version of the bios solves the problem but I wanted advice before I do anything and also pointers on how to update, if thats the way to go.
    Motherboard: Intel D815EEA
    BIOS:EA81510A.86A.0031.P07

    I downloaded a document from intel which seems to suggest version EA81510A.86A.0051.P11.0051
    and above have USB boot enabled from the BIOS.

    Should I upgrade and how do i do it?

    TIA,
    raj

    If it's an OEM (brand name) PC, you should only use BIOS updates supplied by that manufacturer (via their website), as those direct from Intel may not be the right one for that board, so you could end up with a non-working PC and no easy way to fix it.
