well, there is an option to boot from "external devices," and that doesnt work. there is no option to boot from usb. isnt there a way to get a bios upgrade or something? would that let me boot from usb?
edit: i know the dvd will boot from an internal dvd drive because i tried it on another computer with a dvd drive in it and it worked.
