I have had good success using the PloP Boot Manager on PC's that do not normally allow booting from USB.

Follow up on Les Kerf's post. See this thread: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=653084#653084 and particularly Les Kerf's post at the end. Note the distinction between plpbtin.iso and plpbt.iso: the former has the letters "in" in its name and is the one to use.

You are not using a usb 3.0 device are you?

You are only usb 2.0 capable.

Try another port to boot.

Or boot Puppy from a cd, get to the desktop, insert the usb and check
with Gparted your usb.

Select only >>> USB

See if LBA and Boot are ticked for your usb.

See if LBA and Boot are ticked for your usb. It was flagged Boot and is now flagged for both.

As I have installed the OS to harddrive, I rebooted, selecting USB where the stick is shown in the Grub bootloader, but an error message gives file not found .
It is recognised and on the desktop when booted from HD and shows all the Puppy files.

You stated your bios only offers these boot device options for USB.
Quote:
USB-zip, USB-CDROM, USB-FDD

Nothing there for a normal USB flash stick.

Your only option is to try making it apear as one of these to the bios.
If you want to still try it.
I told you how to do it in an earlier post.

I can boot from a USB 2.0 flash drive on my 2003 laptop, but the flash drive does not show up as a USB device. Instead, for whatever reason, the BIOS sees it as a hard drive, so when changing the boot device order I have to go into the hard drive section to find it. Maybe you have a similar issue?

Nothing there for a normal USB flash stick.So I guess the board was not made for USB stick boot-up.

I had already tried using the USB flash installer and that is how I came to have boot option set as USB-FDD

I can live without the facility to boot from stick, so thanks all, but it is not worth your time & effort to pursue this.
