No, I think you cann't. If the BIOS not support USB, which means there is no "USB driver" in BIOS. So the BIOS don't know how to load data from USB device.

I find that I can boot from most computers but some older (between 2001 and 2006) will not boot via USB external hard drive. I'm wondering if this is a possible hdx vs sdx issue since the error I get is:

error: no such device xxxxxxx-4xxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.
error: hd1,1 cannot get C/H/S values.
error: you need to load the kernel first.

Press any key to continue...

Using Ubuntu 10.04.1 x86 Kernel 2.6.32-26 and GNU GRUB 1.98-1ubuntu8
