win xp

hi everyone and thanks for the replies.

i'll answer in order:
1. i don't get usb boot option, even with flash drive in place at start
2. the dvd is burned at 2x, i tried 4 dvd's that are known to work, 2 of them burned at 2x, one at 4x and one retail, and still no boot. the x64 DVD still boots fine

i have been trying for 2 days to get my win7 running, formatted my entire HDD to do a clean install, but still no results.

i'm back to win xp pro sp2, and i think this is where im gonna stay until a new laptop

thanks all

I would stop wrestling with that rogue dvd. IDK, what edition it is but as long as you have your product key safe, you can download an identical copy off the internet or borrow from a friend.

Try extracting the DVD files to desktop using PowerISO or WinRAR, then run Setup.

Flash stick won't show up until it is bootable, which is created by using the steps in tutorial linked.
