    Thats odd never seen that before. If the USB bus is active for a bios upgrade then it should not matter what the usb device is. Well never done a bios upgrade from USB but if it were possible to do it with a floppy then Im sure It could be done with a memory stick. Normally laptop bios updates are done by burning a cd now days.

    yep, you could format a usb stick with a floppy boot image. the computer wouldn't care that its not a floppy.
