Here's the deal; I have a USB Key with a working Linux install, that's not the issue here.
Problem is, The BIOS on this computer isn't, and can't be made USB boot compatible.
I have successfully installed GRUB next to Windows with boot.ini, and that part works currently.
I don't have a floppy drive, and this computer doesn't read CD-R that well. And that would pretty much ruin the fun of using a USB key too boot with at that.
What I can't solve currently, is how to make GRUB fire up some sort of USB drivers, so as to reach the USB key.
I need grub to install USB drivers in pre-os mode, whatever that's called in technical terms.
Grub is installed in the C:\grub\ folder, wich seems to be default.
I've searched these forums, but none match my request exactly, or they can do with floppies, or assume you already have Linux running...
