how can I install XP on a newly formated HD with an external USB CDROM drive. I have a Sony R505 laptop with no internal media drives. I can boot using a USB floppy drive with Microsoft start up disks but can't see the USB CDROM drive to install XP

Hi,

What is the make and model of your USB cdrom drive?

Try downloading the "USB DOS CD ROM Boot Disk" from this site http://www.bgdf.com/darkehorse/PC/DOS/Drivers/USB/index.shtml to see if you can bootup the system with USB cdrom drive support to access the WinXP cd

I guess I should have sent this earlyer but I sovled my problem. The first set of start up disks from Microsoft were for XP Home edition and I needed Pro. The new disks worked and I was able to load XP. By the way the external drive is a Buslink 48X with a Lite On mechanism, works on both Windows and Macintosh computers even though the company says windows only. Thanks for replying to my message.
