Bootable USB Question


Recommended Posts

Hi there!


I have just purchased a Corsair Voyager GT 8GB, and I'm wanting to make it bootable and be able to run some utilities to troubleshoot different machines.


I got one version Knoppix to run as a bootable drive on my Laptop (Dell Inspiron 6000), but I'm having trouble getting it to work on my main machine.


So far, I think the problem is that the BIOS is recognizing the USB drive as a USB-ZIP drive, but I'd like it to see it as a USB-HDD. Is this possible? I have a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 256MB that works just fine and is bootable and recognized as a USB-HDD. Is there a way to flash the firmware or something to get Corsair drive to be HDD?


Thanks for your time.

I have two questions :

Fisrt witch tools make a bootable Key of course you need to be in FAT16 or FAT32 but how make the boot ?

Finally when you are under DOS usb driver are USB1 and when you want to make a ghost it's very slow.

So how load USB2 driver for Dos ?

There is no driver support for USB2 in DOS, its done in your Bios.

To make the drive boot able just use a Win9X or Dos Boot disk and set the Flash drive as if it were a HDD in your bios and then Fdisk and format the HDD as if it was a HDD.
