Oh wait, you meant you switched the bios options around hoping one of them would pick up the external USB optical disc..
In that case, why don't you try the USB stick method for reinstalling Windows?
Yep solar that is just what I did when I found Brinks tut on installing form a USB stick and wished I had been familiar with that method a long time ago as it was so quick.
Now the heavens open up and the updates flood in
Mind you I am wondering what is going to happen as on the TV news this am they mentioned something about the FBI shutting down a lot of the net because of some DNS malware?
