    Hello!

    Just tried out Wyse imaging on a V50LE – works perfectly with an 1 GB Apacer USB stick while a 2 GB noname stick doesn’t. It seems as if this stick isn’t even recognized. However, it’s no problem to use the same stick from the same thin client inside an ICA session.

    Do USB sticks for Wyse imaging have to meet some special specifications?

    Seems there is some witchcraft involved. I’ve tried two different sticks so far without success, a generic one with no label & a Lexar that I acquired because I read somewhere that they work fine. Onething I did discover is that there are actually two different non-Wyse BIOS update tools on this site and one managed to lock me out of BIOS completely (no response whatever to holding down the DELETE key) Other one appears to do the job it was intended to do.

    Meanwhile I have got two Kingston DataTraveler 4 GB sticks and both work. The noname stick isn’t even recognized as “hard disk” in the boot menu although the USB imaging tool had no problem recognizing and writing ths image on it.

    Strange.

    I went out and purchased the Lexar Jumpdrive after I read that someone had used them successfully, however it appears that my 9150 never read that post. Might be interesting to try one of yours & see if they get on together.

    9150 or S90 are compatible. Both have a limited BIOS with very limited USB support. Currently Wyse USB Imager does not support S- or x150 class units.

    DOS version of Wizard that allows a Wyse V90 image to be loaded from a USB memory key.
