bunch of thanx. it worked excellent and i got some usb boot options. thanks a lot. but i m still stucked up with one thing. the password feature is still not working. i can protect the bios settings with a password but not the system booting. it accepts some passwords for system boot at settings but doesnt care while booting :P. if u hav some suggestions then feel free to post, i ll be thankful :D
