Really thankful to the link. But i have changed the mother board and processor. How did you know the manual for my system. PL.

Please also tell what is meant by these words in manual
To install an operating system that supports USB,
verify that Legacy USB support in the BIOS
Setup program is set to Enabled
and follow the
operating system’s installation instructions.
I do not understand this. Think that my bios support boot from usb. I have already informed that i have 2.0 usb port support in all my usb ports.
From the reading, i could say, that my bios support legacy mode.

Well, if you think your bios has support to boot from usb, I don`t understand why you are having so much trouble.

What exactly are you trying to boot from using usb ?

The problem of old computer bios is that it does not contain this usb in boot priority menu.

You don`t seem to understand, there is no driver update program to update a bios, and you can not add anything to a bios.

The bios is written by the Bios company ( Megatrend for example ) you can`t change it.

As you quoted above, make sure legacy USB is set to enabled in BIOS. If that is not your motherboard, completely fill in the correct system specs. Then find the Manual. Google is your friend. We need your correct system specs to help you.

Check again Mother board entry is blank.

If the flash can not boot it usually means it's not marked as active
What is on the flash drive.
