Hi

Ok I want to install windows 8 on my pc, have it installed on a USB flash drive.
Been looking in the bios, but can't find the correct option to set it up so it will
Boot from the USB so it will be recognized, and installed as OS.

Thanks

Make sure the flash drive is prepared correctly and is setup bootable, plug it in and then boot to the bios, go into the boot section you should see the flash drive their and set your boot order to look for it first.

easy beans really.

I usually just hit F8 at the mobo boot screen. A list will appear were you can choose primary boot device. Make sure you have the flash drive plugged in. You can use "Windows7 USB DVD Download Tool" with a Windows 8 ISO to prepare the flash drive.

You can use the Microsoft USB tool and then use F8 to select the source for the install. With Win8 you have to remove the stick anyway for the second part of the install to happen.
