How can I get this machine to legacy boot to a USB connected floppy or USB drive? I'm trying to run the SNZERO boot floppy, it works on an older elitebook, but I cannot get this 840 G3 to boot to this disk.
You'd need to check in the BIOS to see if the unit is in a Legacy mode that will allow Floopy booting.

It has a legacy mode option in the BIOS, but it does not seem to function. I still cannot boot to a floppy or an older DVD, like Windows 2000. I downgraded the BIOS to an older version and tried it as well, to no avail.
