We have to look at this two ways:
- There are boards (or motherboards or mainboards or whatever else you would like to call them) that are actual branded products of Intel. This is the support forum for the desktop versions of these Intel branded board products. If you were referring to one of these boards, then my answer would be yes, the BIOS supports booting from *any* of the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports that are either included on these boards or supported by components on these boards.
- There are also boards that are the branded products of other companies - Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Foxconn, etc. - that just happen to utilize Intel's chipsets, processors and (perhaps) other components. These boards are often (IMHO) erroneously referred to as Intel boards, but they are truly not; they are boards that just happen to utilize Intel Processors. For these boards, whether they support booting from their USB 3.0 ports is a question for those companies to answer, not us. You should go to their web site to get this question answered.
Hope this helps,
thanks a lot for your quick answer
that's exactly this, what i want to know
of cause, if the seller lies, (only cpu and chips are intel - board NOT intel)
nobody can answer my question and i can't do anything
(o.k. send back and zero points for ebayscore of seller)
ps. i try to leave a message here, when i have testet my new computer with my usb 3.0 stick
thanks for your advice, but I really did not want to hear ...
You were right and I have the worse
the board is Biostar and NOT Intel
Although you can boot from 3.0, but with exactly the same speed as boot from 2.0
...and the board looks like a real cheap-edition
see foto: Dropbox - Biostar.mainboard..jpg
so be it - only € 99,- and have scored 20% decline, because of wrong description of article
so only € 79,- (about $ 87)
i use it otherwise, because apart from that the PC is good.
USB 3.0 booting is not possible on DH67CL. I have a USB 3.0 flash drive on which I built a Linux (Debian LXDE, if it matters) system using the USB 2.0 ports. I just placed that drive in a rear USB 3.0 port, booted, pressed F10, and did not see any option other than the DVD/CD drive. This board is flashed to the latest BIOS, 0160. Perhaps it has something to do with DH67 boards being the first generation to have USB 3.0.
Yes, I find a USB 2.0 boot option if a flash drive (either 2.0 or 3.0) is attached. I use this system to run Linux, on either SSD or flash drive, so I am very familar with the boot options menu.
And to compare, I have an HP laptop and another Intel system with a DZ68BC board from which I can boot either 2.0 or 3.0. I think the DH67 is the only exception of Intel's boards.
