I think the board has no trouble booting from USB but your pendrive may not be 100%. What is the brand and model of that pendrive? What bios version are you running? is the board booting at all from any other source like a floppy, harddisk or CD?

Hi
I have tested the usb stick with a newer pc. It is booting and showing the memtest86+ screen. So the motherboard is not USB boot capable. What solution would you suggest.
i have Kobian P4 266aNDMx P4 motherbord .
BIOS IS :--- AMIBIOS SimpleSetup Utility Version 1.21.12

It looks very strange as the MOBO has got 5 different options for USB boot. Am i missing some setting in BIOS??? . It is a Usb non bootable PC inspite of having 5 USB boot options in BIOS . what can be the reason ???
