Toshiba Satellite M 70- No USB Boot option?

by aiglehawk / April 11, 2006 5:19 AM PDT

I have Toshiba Satellite M 70 Model 129.
I want to know can I boot from USB on this laptop. I saw boot options in bios and these are,

HDD
CD/DVD
FDD
LAN


Grossly it shows no options for USB boot. That’s pretty bad.I wonder why there is option to boot from floppy( FDD) while it has no floppy drive even. The model is relatively new and it,s really bad if there is no option for USB boot.

I'll write no.

-> Remember that EXPRESS issue. For example there are no EVDO cards yet. The lack of EXPRESS cards is a leading reason for returns.

If you want to pursue this USB boot, I'd call it in as a warranty issue.
