    Hello,

    I am trying to enable USB 2.0 speeds from a pendrive and i also want to enable USB 1.1(at least) where the bios doesn't support booting from a USB drive.

    I found a dos USB 2.0 driver, it is a single exe, and it says to load to such as, DEVICE=DUSE.EXE
    so can i add this line to a syslinux.cfg and obviously add the DUSE.EXE to the pendrive root?

    Or can i not mix linux syslinux and dos commands?

    Is there a way to load the USB 2.0 from a linux driver instead if not.

    So if the bios supports booting from USB then i assume it will default to USB 1.1 so therefore i can load the USB 2.0 driver from the pendrive.

    If the bios does not support booting from USB then i would have to load the USB drivers from a CD first then i should be able to boot from the pendrive, anyone done this?

    thanks.

      No, syslinux can't run a dos command.

      Yes, as long as you continue linux booting.

      PLoP Boot Manager enable USB 2.0 booting. http://www.plop.at/e...er.html#usbinfo
