ok, after literally 3 hours of googling and trying different things i cannot get my PC to boot from my USB stick and load DOS
i feel like a total retard
was directed to this thread to help with the 1TB drive problem...
i'm using a KINGSTON TRAVELLER 1gig USB drive to try and get into DOS so i can flash the BIOS.
have followed the instructions on making a USB stick bootable (hp format tool) and have confirmed in dos that the 'command.com' and other 2 files are present.
tried formatting the USB as FAT and as FAT32 but no luck.
the computer goes through the motions of loading BIOS, the the RAID text comes up, then the VERIFYING DMI POOL DATA comes up and stops at DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT YOUR ASS INTO THE CD-ROM AND PRESS ENTER!!!
have gone into BIOS to set the boot order as USB-FDD, USB-HDD, USB-ZIP and even tried USB-CDROM but still no DOS
do i need to take out the hard drive(s) from BIOS?
does OS/2 onboard memory need to be enabled?
any ideas as to what the problem is?
