I have a Dell with a proprietary cd-rom. I was trying to install my copy of windows xp but I keep getting a blue screen, I wanted to try a different cd-rom, but since the cd is proprietary, I don’t have another to try.
So I thought I would try the windows setup from a flash drive, and found some instructions, but when I try to boot from my flash drive, I just get a blinking cursor in the upper left corner of the screen. I checked my bios and the pc will boot from a usb device, and I have it as the first boot device.
So does anyone have maybe better instructions on how put the windows xp setup on a flash drive and make the drive bootable?
