My new 1 Gig Verbatim USB memory stick show up as an USB hard drive in Bios and then my computer cant boot on it. I followed the instruction described in this forum to set up both my new Verbatim memory and an older Handy Sieno 250 Mb. The older shows up as a removable USB device and works fine booting up DSL but the Verbatim doesnt boot and are stated in in bios as USB hard drive.
I tried to run syslinux -f switch on the Verbatim but it didnt work either?
Anyone who has a solution. The working USB stick isnt mine and therfore I try to find a solution. Mayby a BIOS Problem?

I managed to solve it myself and I thought maybe good ide to put up the solution.
The BIOS I have in the computer is American Megatrends Inc. v. 02.57. I had to enable the Legacy USB support under USB config and also put the USB HDD to be the first in the boot order. Now it works!!
