I have ICE Cyber  ransome were on my XP computer that has a Phoenix - Award bios on it.  I downloaded Hitman Pro and the directions elsewhere in this site and made a thumb drive bootable drive for the USB port.  However, making the USB the boot port is not an option on this BIOS.  So I copied the files to a CD.  It sit won't boot.  HELP.

You can boot the USB flash drive on a BIOS that does not support it by using Plop Boot Manager. Download plpbt-5.0.14.zip. In the zip file is an iso called plpbt.iso. Burn the iso to a CD using Imgburn or other software that can burn an image. Boot the CD and use your arrow keys to select USB then press enter.

 

I have used this on an Old Dell with a BIOS that does not detect bootable USB flash drives and it worked fine.
