In order to boot from a USB device the BIOS of that laptop has to have that option, and you need to change the boot order so that the USB drive is the first device in the boot order. Some BIOS don't offer this option, you will have to check it and see. You can boot from an external hdd or flash drive using this method, but as I understand it you can't boot from and external optical drive.
Does this computer boot at all?
Can you get to the advanced boot options? Press and hold F8 while it is booting.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
