Hi to all on this board,

I have a general question about firewire (ieee 1394) boot support. My notebook (Toshiba Satellite 3000-514) has an iLink (=ieee 1394=firewire) connector but even the newest bios downloaded from the Thoshiba-Homepage does not offer the "ieee 1394 boot support". I want to use it for an external hard-disk. Knowing that there is nothing else than a Phoenix-Bios in my computer, I looked up their Homepage, reading that there is a notebook option supporting this boot feature. Than I called the Toshiba-Customer-Support-Hotline and asked for that feature. I have been treated there like an as... (sorry for that expression). On my opinion there are only a few bits missing or on the wrong place in my bios. Perhaps, anyone knows what to do?

With best Regards from Germany
