USB Zip Emulation

Common Options : Enabled, Disabled

Quick Review

This BIOS feature is a subset of the ARMD Emulation Type BIOS feature. It is not normally possible to boot off a USB Zip drive because a USB-compatible operating system must first boot up with the USB driver loaded, before any attached USB Zip drive can be accessible.

This BIOS feature allows you to boot up off a USB Zip drive by making it emulate a floppy drive or hard drive.

When enabled, you can boot from any attached USB Zip drive, even in the absence of a USB driver.

When disabled, you will not be able to boot from any attached USB Zip drive. You can only access the Zip drive after a USB-compatible operating system has fully loaded with a USB driver.

If you intend to boot off your USB Zip drive, you must enable this BIOS feature. You should also enable this BIOS feature if you wish to access the Zip drive in the absence of a proper USB driver. For example, with operating systems that do not support USB (e.g. DOS). Otherwise, you can leave it disabled.
