I inherited several HP 4510s laptops. I would like to image them with Clonezilla, but cannot figure out how to make them boot from a USB stick.

There doesn't seem to be a selection in BIOS which makes booting from a USB stick work. Anyone else had the same problem?

HP has a tech note that using a USB drive of 2gb or less may be needed, so I have done that, still no joy.

Thanks.

it should be able to boot from usb

in the bios you need to check system configuration-- port options and make sure usb port is enabled

then in system configuration--device configurations make sure usb legacy support is enabled

for the boot menu its either escape then f9 as it boots or just f9

then either its not going to support it unless a bios upgrade is available

or you are not making your usb bootable correctly

i find the best thing to make them bootable is yumi

this will make it bootable and allow multibooting by adding whatever iso files you like

linux--windows--hirens boot cd etc

All the pendrives I am trying work in other machines. However, I have not checked the BIOS currency, and I will do that. Thanks!

I am in a ProBook 6560 b. I was trying to boot from USB but after pressing F9 the USB disk was not listed among the boot options.

Fortunately, this this worked for me: "in system configuration--device configurations make sure usb legacy support is enabled"
