USB 2.0: Eight Times

Intel has increased the number of possible USB ports from six to eight.

MSI 875P Neo: six USB 2.0 ports on the rear panel, and two further connections onboard to bring up to the front of the PC.

Booting From A USB Stick

It's not completely new, but an interesting feature is USB storage media recognition during the boot-up process. This means final curtains for the diskette.

A USB stick can be emulated as a floppy, hard drive or CD-ROM. By the way: you can also boot from ZIP drives with USB connectivity.

Booting from the USB stick becomes reality: the stick is recognized.

Everything is gonna be allright: our USB stick TREK2000 appears as a drive during the boot process.
