I just built a new computer that has no OS on it currently. I didn't buy an internal DVD drive because I have an external one. I thought that I would be able to install Win7HP from this external DVD drive, but it doesn't seem to be the case. I've been trying to make a bootable USB to install it but I've been having difficulty. I now have a copy of the 32-bit bootsec.exe (from elsewhere on this forum), but I'm not sure how to make the USB load the boot file (like in step 6 here)
Any help is greatly appreciated. I know a bit with cmd but i'm not great, so good instructions are appreciated.
I'm running XP SP3 32-bit on my laptop (where i am trying to create the USB)
