Lets make a list of usb devices that will boot, like the wireless netcard list.

Lexar JumpDrive - 64mb USB1.1 - Boots

AVB 64mb - USB1.1 - Will not boot

Apacer 128mb - USB 2.0 - Will not boot.

They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~

I just picked up a Lexar 128 meg USB 1.1 and booted from it with no problems.

I installed via the right click menu: Install to USB drive.

worked like a charm!
