I would like to boot from the SD card

I have a HP Envy Sleekbook 6-1010US,  Windows 7 64bit,  BIOS -- Insyde F.04, 6/11/12

This BIOS version offers no option to boot from SD card.

Is HP going to offer a new BIOS level that is "compatible" with this laptop and offers SD BIOS boot option??

 

Thanks

Re: I would like to boot from the SD card

This BIOS has a capability to boot from USB flash drive/Pen Drive/ Hard Disk. To the best of my knowledge, Boot from SD card would not be an option that might be available.

I am an HP employee.

Re: I would like to boot from the SD card

Thank You for your reply

The only options I see when I look at BIOS is

 

CD-ROM Boot

Floppy Boot

Internal Network Adapter Boot

 

Do you think there might be a BIOS update in the future that would include SD  or   USB Flash  ??

 

Thanks

Re: I would like to boot from the SD card

Oh if life were that easy.

I want to leave the SD card in the SD slot of the laptop.

I know different BIOS levels offer boot from SD but apparently HP didnt put that on the ENVY sleekbook 6-1010US

I would prefer HP offered a BIOS update that had this feature activated for my model.

I dont want to Flash BIOS from InsydeH20 website -- its not worth the trouble it MIGHT cause with the laptop.

Thanks for your reply but what you see is not what I see. However I am always open to sane options
