You don't have to learn how to change the boot sequence in the BIOS. This
would be tedious and possibly dangerous. As I said, you need to learn how
to access the boot menu so you can just select a boot device. These are two
different things.

I tried a new thumb drive and also a WD external mechanical drive. Both
devices hang up the machine. It is a 3.5 year old Inspiron laptop.

Its no big deal to me for this older machine but, what are my odds in
keeping a USB external backup drive plugged in to a brand new Dell with
the bios set up to boot off the UsB first? In other words, I don't want
this new machine to also hang up on the external UsB drive. I am hoping
to be able to use Carlos' PE on this new machine at startup. If not, I
will just learn how to go in to the boot sequence and manually change the
boot up preferences when I need the PE.

I have seen this in some old machines. Plugin in a USB flash drive
sometime do not allow the operating system to boot.
I believe there's nothing that could be done about it. Maybe updating
the BIOS to the latest version resolve the issue. Also it's not
happening with all flash drives.
Hope this helps.

I have a Dell laptop that does have its bios configured to first attempt

reason, a nonbootable thumb drive hangs the machine up during startup
and it just sits there until I restart without the thumb drive plugged
in.

Do you have any guesses as to why?

You are referring to selecting a device from the boot menu. You will
first have to determine the key for accessing the menu on your system.
You can find this information in the manual or with a Google search
using the model number of your machine. After you determine the key to
access the boot menu, you may initially need some sighted assistance to
determine the order in which devices are listed. Although you may be
able to figure it out by experimenting.

As for your second question, it doesn't matter if you have the boot
sequence in the BIOS configured to boot from USB first. Non-bootable
devices will be ignored so leaving a USB drive always connected for
backup purposes will not be a problem as long as it does not contain a
bootable partition.

Carlos, Thanks for your informative response.

I’ll just use your Win PE to perform the actions that I was
considering the cloned drive for on that particular laptop.

But, moving on to a some what different topic. I have a second Dell
laptop that does not have its bios configured to first attempt to
boot from the USB port when a bootable drive is detected. Other
than looking for eye sight to change the boot sequence in the bios,
what are step by step directions for useing one of the function keys
to select the option to boot from the USB drive? And, maybe I still
need eye sight for that too. I have never had anyone read the menus
in the bios to me so I don’t even know what to look for. But
someone mentioned memorizing keystrokes to tell the machine which
drive to boot from.

And, I need to ask just one more question, please. If I configure
the bios on a laptop to boot from the USB first, will this action
prevent me from keeping a backup external USB drive plugged in at
all times. My point is just that I am assuming that the laptop
would hangup during the boot sequence if it sees a nonbootable
device plugged in to the USB port.

I hope I got all of that out clear enough for you to have a fair
chance to understand.

Many many, thanks,

James

Sorry I did not answer part of your question. Yes, swapping the
cloned drive with the internal one should normally work. If your
machine has one which is uncommon, an eSATA connection should also
work with external drives since at this point the cloned disk would
be detected as an internal drive. Although in this case, you would
have to select the second drive from your machine's boot menu
assuming you can figure out how to access it.

In theory yes, but except for special cases like the "Windows To
Go" option provided by the Enterprise edition of Windows 8 and
later, Windows may by design and default not boot from USB
disks. This is not to say that it can't be done, but simply
cloning Windows on to a USB disk may not be enough. There are
many online tutorials for doing what you are trying to
accomplish, but I haven't really kept track of this sort of
thing recently. Although I was able to get XP to boot from USB
in the past, it wound up being more effort than it was worth.
Depending on what you had in mind, it may not be worth your time
and effort either. Even if you manage to get Windows to boot
from a USB disk, again with the exception of special cases like
the "Windows To Go" option, you cannot normally connect that
disk to another system and expect it to work which is usually
the reason users want this capability. In versions of Windows
later than XP, a standard license is tied to the hardware on
which it was initially activated. In the case of a retail
license, this means it can only ever be used on one machine at a
time. In the case of an OEM license, it can only ever be used
on one machine. While some tutorials might also suggest ways of
bypassing this limitation, such methods are almost certainly
illegal so be careful.

Hi Carlos,

I have a dell laptop that has its bios configured to boot
from a USB port first if a bootable USB device is present.

I want to use the free version of xx cloan to cloan my
primary drive to an external USB drive.

Question? Will my laptop boot from the newly cloaned
external drive via the USB connection instead of booting
from its own internal drive? Or, would I have to remove the
external drive from its enclosure and swap the two drives to
boot from the cloaned copy?



If you are asuming that I do not understand the principles

Updating Dell BIOSs is not a difficult thing often. I would recommend give it a try. Maybe Dell corrected this problem in recent BIOS update for your laptop.

Have you ever used the drive to boot anything?  The drive may have remnants of a boot loader in the boot sector which would cause the drive to be detected as a bootable device.  If so, you can try cleaning the drive with diskpart to get rid of it.

Just one more question. 
I have a Dell laptop that does have its bios configured to first attempt to boot off bootable devices plugged in to the USB port.  For some reason, a nonbootable thumb drive hangs the machine up during startup and it just sits there until I restart without the thumb drive plugged in.
 
Do you have any guesses as to why?

You are referring to selecting a device from the boot menu.  You will first have to determine the key for accessing the menu on your system.  You can find this information in the manual or with a Google search using the model number of your machine.  After you determine the key to access the boot menu, you may initially need some sighted assistance to determine the order in which devices are listed.  Although you may be able to figure it out by experimenting.
 
As for your second question, it doesn't matter if you have the boot sequence in the BIOS configured to boot from USB first.  Non-bootable devices will be ignored so leaving a USB drive always connected for backup purposes will not be a problem as long as it does not contain a bootable partition.

Sorry I did not answer part of your question.  Yes, swapping the cloned drive with the internal one should normally work.  If your machine has one which is uncommon, an eSATA connection should also work with external drives since at this point the cloned disk would be detected as an internal drive.  Although in this case, you would have to select the second drive from your machine's boot menu assuming you can figure out how to access it.

I have seen this in some old machines. Plugin in a USB flash drive sometime do not allow the operating system to boot.
I believe there's nothing that could be done about it. Maybe updating the BIOS to the latest version resolve the issue. Also it's not happening with all flash drives.
Hope this helps.

In theory yes, but except for special cases like the "Windows To

later, Windows may by design and default not boot from USB
disks. This is not to say that it can't be done, but simply
cloning Windows on to a USB disk may not be enough. There are
many online tutorials for doing what you are trying to
accomplish, but I haven't really kept track of this sort of
thing recently. Although I was able to get XP to boot from USB
in the past, it wound up being more effort than it was worth.
Depending on what you had in mind, it may not be worth your time
and effort either. Even if you manage to get Windows to boot
from a USB disk, again with the exception of special cases like
the "Windows To Go" option, you cannot normally connect that
disk to another system and expect it to work which is usually
the reason users want this capability. In versions of Windows
later than XP, a standard license is tied to the hardware on
which it was initially activated. In the case of a retail
license, this means it can only ever be used on one machine at a
time. In the case of an OEM license, it can only ever be used
on one machine. While some tutorials might also suggest ways of
bypassing this limitation, such methods are almost certainly

Skype is not notifying me about status changes

Hello,
Hope this finds you well...:)
Operating system Windows 10. Using Skype 7.26.0.101 and JAWS version 17.0.2619.400 with JAWS scripts version for Skype 622B, revision 954.
Skype is not notifying me about status changes. E.G. "James is online" or "James went offline", even if I select the relevant options in Tools>Options>Notifications. I selected all the "Display a notification in the Windows tray when someone..." check boxes, except the "has a birthday" check box. (even if I also check that one, it have no effect on my problem.) Also, I am sure my Skype Watch is loaded and working.
Also Skype is not playing sounds for "contact online and "my contact goes offline". I am sure they are checked in options. I can here all other sounds.
So any idea about this issue?

To access the Adblock Plus settings, run the file
index.html
in the folder
C:\Program Files\Adblock Plus for IE\html\templates
after installing it. You will see a checkbox labeled
"Allow some non-intrusive advertising "
