Re: Need help with this newbie
I wouldn't be surprised if you can set the bios to boot from a usb device. I don't know how you would go about burning the iso image to the flash drive and making it bootable.
The same would work with a USB cd drive.
Do you know how to access the bios on that laptop? If you do see if you can change the boot order and have usb drive set as the first thing to boot from. Or just post a list of the boot options you have in the bios. you don't happen to know anyone with the same laptop do you? You could just borrow their CD drive or use their laptop as a mule and put your hard drive in it.
