    i got a dell inspirion mini netbook with only DOS on it and i want to install windows xp on it. I already have an original xp installation disc dut since the netbook doesnt have a disc reader im suing win to flash to transfer it to my 8gb kingston flash drive. But when i boot from USB it simply says:
    "NTLDR is missing
    Press any key to restart"
    I dont know what to do PLS HELP!!!!!!!!!

    It might be cheaper to buy an external USB CD ROM than a good size flash drive.
