Hi hvelasco .....
first of all make sure your BIOS is capable of booting from a flash drive, otherwise there's no chance for your goal. If it does, then follow one of this links:

Any questions please ask.

Dear kronostm,
 Looks like the first site point to a memory card but not to a memory flash that I have integrated in my board. I have RS232 connection, but I want to knowhow to access the flash memory and save the changes in it so next time I will have the update. This is a flash memory integrated. Thanks
