    Well, so far I've tested 2 usb flash sticks:

    -Sandisk Cruzer 8GB V8
    -Sandisk Cruzer 2GB V7

    Both with disappointing results. What can I say, don't get me wrong, Gigabyte makes a great motherboards with an approach to the future, but something is missing with their futuristic approach which is the support for solid-state storage, which is a great miss. soon spinning media is going to disappear off the face of the planet, and we can't be too picky about buying our storage devices, therefore I wouldn't recommend buying their motherboards to anyone that is planning to use a solid-state usb storage devices. too bad for them, still they can improve their motherboards compatibility. That's the reason why my next motherboard won't be a Gigabyte.

    Thank you.

    Hi Lsdmeasap<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    -I've attached Gigabyte's answer for the USB boot speeds issues.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>

    A - This is like if we were like say 30 years ago and IBM would tell to their customers "Hey, your PC XT can't boot? what floppies did you bought? no, sorry, we're supporting Verbatim disks only, otherwise don't come to us."<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    B - "USB boot up is not a PC standard"? - since when our motherboards are PC Standard? -Things are not "PC standard" since IBM made PC an open platform like 20 years ago? -but USB 2.0 is a standard. Most of the manufacturers (even crap boards from ECS and PC-Chips) support POSTing @ USB 2.0 speeds, Hence booting from USB is a "PC standard" but NOT a "Gigabyte standard".<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    C - This issue caused only by Gigabyte stubborn altitude. I'm sure this is not a hardware issue since the chipsets made by manufacturers like Intel,AMD,VIA,SiS,ULi etc' and it can be resolved by a simple BIOS upgrade.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>

    Thank you for your time.

    Well... That may be of no help, it could be that particular brand itself or the memory it uses. Can you please test with another brand

    Some sticks just wont work for certain things, I have a 512MB PQI that will work with Qflash, and then another PQI 2GB sent to me directly from Gigabyte that will not work at all in Qflash. Then I have another 2GB Non Branded (DES Energy Saver Leaf) sent directly from Gigabyte that works just fine.

    So it could be brands or memory used in the stick themselves, but I can assure you some will just not work and others will work fine.

    Solid State Storage will be internal SATA and you will not need to worry about this. Just so you know in case you are thinking of getting a SSD, they all work fine in Gigabyte boards and I am using one now.

    Hi there,

    I've got the same problem of slow booting USB devices on a gigabyte mainboard. I've managed to get a workaround for this problem, I'm using the bootmanager from PLOP Linux (
    <cite>www.plop.at) It has a USB launcher option an is using his own controller driver and is not using the bios USB driver. The
    problem is
    </cite>definitely in<cite> the gigabyte bios but that can only be fixed bij gigabyte. I hope this will help you as good as it did for me. I run now stuff from my usb stick at full speed \

    grtz

    Hi Sigma!

    Thanks for your advice but I've already tried PLoP and their USB driver freeze my system when I had chosen some ports and other ports worked @ usb 1.1 speed. I don't remember exactly but it was no good for me. thanks anyway.
