Hi Milton,
Thanks for the suggestion, but this device will need the BIOS settings 
tweaked for that to work.
I do use USB boot devices a lot, but the screen is not very good, so it is 
even difficult for sighted folk to read it, and then it is the hassle of 
guiding a sighted person around a BIOS that you haven't read yourself.
I typically use Universal USB installer for such things, and I do have a USB 
DVD drive too.
