CD to Boot USB?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an old computer that can't boot from USB. So I was wondering where I can find a cd that will boot to usb (so the computer will boot the cd, which will boot the usb).

While I'm at it, I also would like to know how to "burn" an iso image to a usb drive.

1) Your old pc should support USB booting, Check the latest BIOS update & implement it.

2) You can use IsoBuster 2.1 to extract the ISO file into your USB Drive.

I'll give you $5 million to boot USB via BIOS. This is a very special computer. And it is not one of my computers listed in my profile.

I have a version of slax already? I bet it is able to boot to usb as well, but I looked through the commands and didn't see anything. What's the command?

1) I have already $5 million so I'll pass.

2) Use MySLAX Creator, it's an easy way to create a bootable (usb or CD) SlaX, yet you can add Slax modules (Drivers & apps) into it -create a tailor made Linux -.
