Asus P8H61-M - can it boot from USB?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I imagine, since it's a modern motherboard, that it can boot from USB - but can anyone confirm that?

Thanks

Yes it can - as long as the USB is formatted correctly to be boot-able, just select it as the 1st boot device in the bios or press F8 while booting and it will come up with a boot select.

Yea, all motherboards are set up to boot from USB now-a-days. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I've seen that on every motherboard I've touch for the last 2-3 years now.
