    I have an desktop manufactured in 2002 by a South Korean company Hyunju.
    The company is now out of business.
    It's bio's do not allow booting from a usb memory stick.

    I want to find an bio's update that adds booting from usb memory stick.

    I know the desktop uses AWARD bio's chip and the bio's id string is
    01/08/2002-694T-686-P6VXM2TC-00

    All the internet bio's chip update url's found by Google search are
    customized for MS windows.

    Suggestions on how or where to purchase the correct bio's chip update?

if bios does not allow booting from usb a update won't either


The current bios allows booting from usb-hard drive, floppy, cdrom, zip, all which are external drives. This desktop was mfg before usb memory sticks can on the market. So the desktop does not have support for booting from usb memory stick. Freebsd 7.0 can find and use the usb memory stick for writing and reading data.

Just need to update bios containing option to boot from usb memory stick.
