Dunno, some pc's need a bios update some are just too old to have that feature, either way your only hope is to search the dell website for the latest bios for your model and see if the release notes mention usb boot.Given the age of your machine, I do doubt it I'm afraid..Older Opti Plex models (mostly produced in 20), notably the GX270, suffered from frequent failures due to faulty capacitors supplied by Nichicon.These capacitors would bulge and leak, resulting in product failure after only a few years of use.
And here we will take Driver Talent as an example, which has reviewed by Safe Tricks as the “Safest and Fastest Way to Update Drivers”, and show you how to download the Dell Opti Plex drivers in 3 easy steps.
The Opti Plex series comes in various sizes which have evolved as the style of chassis has changed.

I have looked through the documents on Dell's support site, but can only find out what the largest size hard drive that shipped with those machines.
