How to reinstall Windows 7 with this particular problem?
by ivancans - 3/24/13 8:11 AM
My friend gave me his Asus X5DC to do a complete re install of the OS. There are two problems why I can't do this. First, his laptops DVD/CD player isn't working. Second, when I'm trying to boot Windows files from USB, it doesn't recognize it. It simply loads files not from the USB but from HDD. In the BIOS there are 4 options for booting - HDD, CD/DVD, Removable device and network. Now, I would guess, that USB falls into category "removable device", but, as it seems, it doesn't. Maybe there are motherboard/usb compatibility issues, that I don't know. So, I hope you understand what the problem is and are capable of helping me.
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum section, I'm a complete newbie here. Waiting for your suggestions.
