Reinstalling OS from bootup with flash drive
by BoyOBoy100 - 9/19/13 3:06 PM
First of all, please keep in mind that I am a total newbie when it comes to computers, so please explain everything in super-layman's terms.
Now, I have an MSI Wind U100 whose hard drive I deleted by running a erasing software. The problem is that since then, I always encounter a booting error because I apparently erased the operating system too.
I want instructions on how to reinstall the operating system from bootup. I have the utilities and XP operating system CDs but the problem is that the MSI does not have a CD drive.
Ergo, I want to know how to install the XP operating system on the MSI with a flash drive. It has 4 GB.
I can't afford to buy a separate CD drive as I'm basically broke. But my friend has offered to lend me his laptop if that helps.
Please explain all the steps clearly and in full. Also, I'm not sure if I need to use both the CDs I have.
Thanks in advance!
