[chirp_users] Chirp LiveCD update

I can get into the BIOS, and I can change the boot order, but USB is not
included in the available boot devices ...

My PC is not a manufactured one, its a built one so there's no user guide. I
guess I can search for the BIOS on good old Google and see what I can find.

You need to figure out how to get into the BIOS of your PC and change the
boot order. You may have to enable USB boot. If you have a Dell PC hit F12
for a custom boot menu during startup (before windows starts) or F2 to get
into the BIOS and dig around in there. Check your PC user guide (probably
downloadable) for BIOS configuration information.

I've already created a cd which works perfectly and today I thought I'd try
creating a bootable USB stick. It all went well as per the wiki instructions
but I came to a grinding halt when I discovered that my PC (Windows 7 Pro 32
bit) has no option to boot from  a USB port. It only has the C: drive, the
Floppy drive (does anyone use them any more?) and the CD/DVD drive. I can't
see anywhere to add the USB to the available options, or any way to change
the Floppy drive option to USB. Any suggestions?
