1. Can you get into BIOS setup and enumerate the boot priorities available?

2. What prevents you from installing the OS from an optical drive? ( I presume your m/c has one.)

It is quite obvious that if you have no USB ports, you cannot use any USB device. Install from the optical drive.

zino0001, you still haven't answered my query in post #4.

2. What prevents you from installing the OS from an optical drive? ( I presume your m/c has one.)

And that's the way we did it those days.

Check to see if there's a BIOS update for your board.
