    I created Acronis bootable media. Instead of putting it on a CD, though, I created it on a USB flash drive. When I plug in the drive and reboot, however, the computer does not boot from the USB flash drive. It goes directly to Windows XP. Why? Is there something I need to change in the BIOS?

    Assuming the flashdrive is bootable and your computer is capable of booting USB devices, you'll need to set the flashdrive as the booting drive in the BIOS or by using a Boot Menu when the computer starts (sometimes F8 or F11, for example) and select the flashdrive from the list.

    What version and build of TI are you using?
