i think my question will be more appropriate in this topic... that's why i changed it (ref.: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_20952426.html
I want to install winXP pro. The laptop have no Floppy drive and no internal CD-Rom Drive.
I found an IBM external CD-Rom drive (USB) and i changed the boot device (to ATAPI CD-ROM Drive) into the Bios, but it still not work.
Note: the Bios USB config is set to "Enabled".
I tried to boot from "Removable Devices" and it not work to.
At this moment, win2000 is installed... the HD must be formated to receive winXP pro.
this is always urgent....
