HP EliteBook 2730P could not boot from external USB-CDROM / USB-DVDROM

We have a HP EliteBook 2730P that could not boot from external USB CDROM. I have check all settings in BIOS and make sure that USB-CDROM is in first position when boot.

 

I have press F9 key when boot up, but the laptop could not find USB-CDRM, the option are local hard disk and network.

 

Also, I have tried two external USB-CDRM, BUFFALO(DVSM-P58U2/BW-US) and U Style(USB-CDROM).

 

Could any people give me a help?

 

 

Regards,

Provost

Hi,

Write down Your p/n number which is under Your computer and looks like this and Your Bios version number.

Re: HP EliteBook 2730P could not boot from external USB-CDROM / USB-DVDROM

has anyone resolved this issue? I have 6 tablets and I want to capture an image from one and load on the others. There seem to be a lot of people asking how to boot to USB or USB-CDROM but haven't come across any answers. Chatted with HP support tech last night and he said I should be able to do this ...

I called HP and get a BIOS update to fix this issue.
