I recently bought an Asus X53Z laptop (http://www.ebuyer.com/351622-asus-x53z-laptop-x53z-sx066v). Its barely a month old but the installed programs are driving me crazy.

Now I want to install Windows 7 as per the MSDN ISO download, however, strangly enough, the Asus bios doesnt have boot option for USB.

How do I enable the USB bios from the boot menu in Bios?

Cheers

Boot option for USB?, sorry if this is kinda off but usually if you have the USB drive plugged in to your computer while your in BIOS you can set the BIOS to boot from external media devices(like USB).

Otherwise I guess your just going to have to burn that ISO onto a DVD.

I find it impossible to believe that there is no usb boot option in today's laptops...

Usually laptops including my own will allow you to select external media to boot from during the POST screen(before BIOS).

On my laptops it's the F12 key, on some others it's the Escape key. Give it a try.
