The screen says: "Intel UNDI , PXE-2.1 (buld 082) For Realtek RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.06 (080225) CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 03 0D A0 C7 C7 GUID:...


Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* internal disk-drive
* internal CD/DVD drive
* internal 3.5" drive
* external USB device (memory stick, external CD drive, et cetera)
* via your network-adapter -- trying to connect to a "boot-server"

So, restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Be sure that the disk-drive *IS* listed.
If you want, exclude the "network" boot-device,
since the error-messages that you are seeing are indicating that *NO* boot-server exists on your network.

What the messages *COULD* imply is that there is no media in the CD/DVD drive,
no media in the 3.5" drive, nothing "bootable" connected via a USB port,
*AND* that your computer *TRIED* but *FAILED* to boot from your disk-drive.

That is, your disk-drive either is electrically disconnected (no power reaching it)
or electronically disconnected (the "data" cable is not attached)
or that the disk-drive itself is "dead".

Take your computer to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.
You may have to replace the "dead" disk-drive with a brand-new one.

How much is a dvd-rom drive. model;GDR-3120L. X800475-016.S/N;016-7A291555, ROM VER,0079FL.


Around here, a brand-new "internal" CD/DVD reader/writer is about $40. Note that you can disassemble your current "external" drive/casing, remove the old, and presumably "dead", internal DVD-drive, and insert a brand-new one, in order to "refresh" your external DVD-drive.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.
