Mattliston, check out bootdisk.com for more reference

Whenever I need to flash my bios I just make a bootable Win98SE disk. I boot off of that floppy and then I insert the floppy that has the bios file(run the flashing .exe ect). For a USB drive I would imagine the same applies except the bios files can probably be all stored on one device.

Perhaps someone else here that has done this can shed some light.

Good luck

N2, It does sound like failing caps in your PS. If it's out of warranty then crack it open and look for bulging caps. a good method to discharge the ps before cracking it is too stick a fan on the molex connector and jump the start switch (Green to black).

you cant format a usb thumbdrive with MSDOS instructions. I got around it and forced it with a program called windows enabler. also sets the capacity at 1.42mb intead of 3.73gb

I'll have to look at it real soon. I bought it back in 2005 and I think it prolly only has a 3 year warranty. So my chances are it is out of warranty. I could always try for RMA if it is defecting. I read a couple of bad reviews about Enermax a while back though so I don't know if I should RMA it. I mean if I can do it my self for close to or less then the cost of S/H for the RMA then I'd prolly be better off repairing the unit that was praised several years ago for being a very good 600W 80+ SLI Certified PSU. Thanks for the + and the info about chischarding the caps w/a molex fan. Very good info.

Interesting. I'm not sure why I would want to do that if I can't use the space on the drive for all my bios files. 1.42 would get full really fast.

Mattliston, here is a somewhat "cheap" alternative on Newegg. Here is some other suggestions to look up on Google.

Good luck

I'm confused now, Are you guys saying you cannot create a boot disk on usb from floppy creation? Who cares if it's only 1.44mb? you can always make another fat16 or 32 partition or just stretch the created one.

N2 go got PM.

I never would have thought about stretching it. I guess I could try that w/the Partedmajic software that I use.
