To feedback stuff [period end of story] No more Gigabytes on my lab:

Well, There is no problem with hardware, is just the bios code, if you 
downgrade BIOS it works, if you upgrade to recent ones doesn't.
The other customers that try to boot trow USB-HDD may be didn't know there 
exist feedback, and may be buy another brand of M.B. without asking support, 
or replace the code with a CD-CARD.
In fact the problem can be fixed easy, just buying compatible M.B. and testing 
with dealers before to go for many ones. And of course this problem does 
affect more to you than me.

I am not awaiting response.
