I am trying to install Win7 on my laptop. My laptop does not have a DVD-ROM so I am using a USB DVD_ROM. I have set the BIOS to boot with this device first and have used the F12 key also to boot with the above said device. It doesn't matter what I do the USB Device is not being recognized and the laptop goes to the Win XP screen. Please help
