USB support could only be
activated for booting. So if you do not boot from it, you get no
access without drivers for USB.

OK; this is something I have not come across. I tend to assume "emulation" was in earlier BIOS's and then "bootability" came later, but you are saying some BIOS's can boot, but can't emulate? That seems a bit odd because how can they read the sectors after they've booted? I mean it must boot up and then assign a drive letter to the USB boot device, and that implies BIOS emulation and therefore BIOS ability to read/write to a USB device.

(I'm sure you're right I just haven't seen it this way round).
