    Default Bios limitation on GA-P45-UD3R

    I have a GA-P45-UD3R

    I needed to run a virus scan at boot using a USB Pen Drive. When I went into bios I was only offered a choice of Floppy, LS 120,Hard Disk, CD Rom, Zip, USB FDD, USB Zip, USB CDrom,USB HDD,Legacy Lan, or Disabled. There is no option to use a USB Pen Drive. I tried the CD boot disc and it will work but it took over 3-1/2 hours of listening to cd drive grinding away. . I am using the new Kasperky Rescue Iso for both CD and USB pen drive.

    Is there anyway to get the Bios to see the Usb pen drive ?

    Sure. USB drives show as HD.
    At boot time press F12, and from the menu select Hard Disk + (something like that) and the USB drive will show as HDD 0-0 or USB 0-0, select and press enter.

    You must also be sure that you have Legacy USB Storage or USB Storage Detect enabled in the Integrated Peripherals BIOS section.

    The latest bios update brings USB2.0 support.
