i have a laptop right now that does not have any cd drices or floppy in it and it ignores every external usb drive iv tried to boot from. im trying to reinstall XP on it and so far the only option iv come up with is to stick it in another laptop and install it on the hard drive, however, that does not work obviously. since it installs itself according to the host computers hardware and such and iv gotten a BSoD trying that. does anyone on here have any other ideas short of buying a new semi-expensive multibay drive for an old laptop? thanks!
