BIOS too old

I think the original developer of the BIOS is in a retirement home by now, or 
may be he got shot.

I search for the BIOS update, there does not seem to be one. It's for a Toshiba 
Satellite 1115-S103 laptop.

Send the BIOS to the retirement home :-) - or shoot it if it's in agony.

I have the same problem with one of my motherboards - it just cannot 
boot from an USB stick :-( . Too old....seen better days...

Unless of course there is an upgrade to that BIOS. Have you checked?
