x61 won't boot to usb flash drive

I'm sure i've done this several times before, but for some reason my x61 will not allow me to boot to usb flash drive, which i normally use to install OS'.

Any suggestions what could be wrong and what i could do to rectify it?

 

I should mention that USB is enabled in the BIOS, and the usb flash disk install works on other computers.

 

Update appeared to be some incompatibility with wintoflash, i used the Microsoft DVD/USB tool and it booted to the flash drive and completed the install. Strangely the wintoflash install worked fine in an HP dv3000.

 

Consider this solved.

Hi drtigerlilly, thanks for coming back and posting the solution!

 

Unfortunately there's no way in this forum software to mark the first post in a thread as the solution!

 

If you want to want to tag this thread as solved, please reply to this post, mention that the solution is above in the first post, then accept your new post as the solution.
