    Default Bios doesn't support booting from USB.

    Is there anyway I can make a cd that serves no purpose other than to boot BackTrack from my usb key? Google is running me around in circles and I'm pretty much at a loss here. Any help would be appreciated.

    The easier way is to boot from the BT cd, with a usb drive containing the necessary folders, and edit one of the options to add nocd at the end.

    Im straying a bit from the CD idea but be sure to check for any BIOS firmware updates that my be available if you havent already. A simple update of your BIOS may reveal the ability to boot to that precious USB key

    Just wanted to pop back in and thank everyone who had a suggestion. The problem is solved using both methods in the first two posts. balding_parrot unfortunatly the only bios update listed for me is a minor unreleated bugfix but it was a good suggestion none the less. Thanks everyone.
