    IT question lads! ERD Commander.

    Ok, ERD Commander on cd - boots perfectly etc, but I want to use it on a laptop with no cd drive. Put the contents onto a usb stick and it won't boot - although the laptop will boot from usb ( I've enabled it in the bios ) - it gets as far as saying invalid system disc as it does not understand what's on the usb drive.

    what else do I need to do to make this work? the files on the usb stick are obviously intented to boot from a cd rather than usb.

    Can you format the USB as a system disc....

    That's the only way I can think of it working...
    Fair enouigh th ebios is set to look for hard drive, optical then USB....but it's looking for a 'system'...


    or maybe this thread:

    forgive me if I'm talking male conkers ...I'm just a user !

    U need a USB stick capable of being a boot drive.

    Try a Corsair Flash Voyager, thats what I use.
