Phoenix BIOS update for USB booting?
Posted on 2010-08-16
Hello, we have a rather urgent problem and that is we need to boot from a USB stick on a particular computer.
It did however turn out that the BIOS program does not include support for USB-booting which is quite a pain indeed.
The motherboard is of chipset SIS-630E and it turns out the BIOS version is quite ancient:

In desperation we wonder whether it is possible to perhaps upgrade to a later version that includes support for USB booting? To make things it even worse it is also a no-name computer so the BIOS can not be located at any drivers at manufacture homepage.
So far we have not been successful to find the latest compatible Phoenix BIOS version but it should be available somewhere else but where?
And lastly, since it is a customer computer it is imperative that there should be no possibilties for a BIOS grade to mess up the computer so booting the OS is no longer supported.
This is quite a delicate and import matter so all input in this matter is highly appreciated.
