    Please hit F12 at startup to get to the boot menu, then choose HDD+ and on the next screen choose your USB Stick by name. You should recognize it, if not just pick the one that does not look like your hard drive names.

    Some USB Devices will not work for this or Qflash, can you use your USB Stick and it be seen with Qflash? It would appear as a second floppy drive.

    Does it show up in Qflash? You do have USB 1.1 and 2.0 enabled in the BIOS correct? And Legacy USB Storage Detect enabled as well right?

    Do you have another brand to test with to be sure it is not maybe a computability issue?

    The USB hub is the issue then. Power surge? What do you mean? Maybe you have some short somewhere?

    You should be able to plug it into the rear or front of the board and have ZERO issues.
