Is it safe to say that most newer (x64 2010+) desktop BIOS from major manufacturers can be configured for USB boot?
I'd like to be able to boot from USB for GParted 10, Windows 7 pro, and Ghost 2003+ ideally on a small form factor stateless disk drive like desktop with no built in CD/DVD ROM. Can anybody recommend good tiny HW and boot/iso SW for this?
Any technical reason/limitation why BIOS firmware do not already come with some form of BOOT FROM USB ISO like feature built in where you do not need a DVD rom or even a boot formated USB drive? How cool would it be that you could boot to bootloader that prompts you for an ISO on a USB or Local file mount?
