Usb availability as bootable device port from within BIOS

Does anyone know, please, whether the Packard Bell Butterfly Touch (which does not have a buit-in optical drive) can boot from a USB-connected external drive? I am thinking of buying Bounceback Ultimate back-up software, but their website warns that this software will only work on PCs having USB as an available bootable device port from within the system BIOS. How can I tell?

  1. Go into the BIOS and look at your options for boot order. USB should be in there. Test it.....
  2. It should do, but it might not show up as an option in the bios until the drive is connected and you have booted into Windows allowing the drive to be recognised.
