bios recognition of usb drive for booting purpose
I have an HP motherboard w/P4 with 40 GB disk
another Maxtor 500GB Hard disk on the usb.
Problem: On start up with device selection for booting,
my pen drive always gets listed as USB HDD0 and USB HDD1
and Iam able to boot thru' them.
However my Maxtor HDD in the first partition of which I have
installed FC 13 after much pain,so as to not disturb my
existing installation FC 11 in internal drive.
This device itself is not visible, nothing to have to say about its partitions in bios list of devices to select.
Whether this is a drive related problem or bios related.
How may I make it visible in bios list.
Would my bios be upgradeable ?
Please help if anyone knows.........
Further note: Fedora core 13 installation didn't worry about the windows XP and Fedora 11 installation in main drive. It allowed for installation of the individual boot loader in the installation drive itself.
Bios not recognising this drive precluded access at boot from
grub.conf of the exising FC 11 installation too.
