    Default Boot BT2 with a USB-key on computers without USB boot support

    Hello. This is my first post, and I just want to know if there is a way to boot BackTrack2 using a USB-key on a computer that does not support USB boot. In Slax, this can easily be done by using the Slax BootCD. However, I tried using my Slax BootCD to boot my BackTrack2 flashdrive but it did not work. Is there any workaround to this? I want to know how to make a custom BackTrack BootCD to boot my flashdrive.

    Note:
    I performed the steps described here:
    Code:
    h**p://backtrack.offensive-security.com/index.php?title=Howto#Installing_BackTrack_to_a_USB_Stick
    to make my USB flashdrive bootable.


    Thanks!

    Hi.

    I want to, but HP doesn't offer a new BIOS for my laptop.

    Thumbs up

    Came across this a few days ago on the forums:

    I use the CD to boot with:
    "boot: bt nocd"

    This boots a laptop that can't boot from USB, to the point where it can load the modules, ect.. from a USB device.

    I was planning to try that, but then I realized that my USB is not even bootable! The steps in the link on my first post did not work for me.
