Can I force a boot from a USB drive? Tags: Flash Media Boot USB Drive Storage Last response: April 7, 2012 8:17 AM in Storage Share childofthetao April 7, 2012 7:57:15 AM Hello, is it possible for me to force my laptop to boot from a USB drive? When I go to the boot menu I see no option to boot from USB so I guess it's not supported in the bios. Is there any way to force it? I want to install linux but my dvd drive overheats after a few minutes of reading the disc.
