Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook
My laptop is not exactly a c610, but very close (it's a c600), but anyway... Ok, so I got this laptop from my cousin used. He didn't have the optical disc drive however, so I cannot boot to install Windows. He gave me 3 hard drives, and I decided to run Dariks Boot and Nuke on them, and completely erase the contents of all the drives. Trouble now is installing Windows 2000 back onto the laptop. I have both a Cruzer Micro (and a Titanium) USB key and a external Buslink 52x32x52 cdrw burner that works via USB.
Is there any software I can use to boot to USB? Is there a setting the BIOS for USB boot? I have the latest Bios revision, by the way.
Most of the newer motherboards have an option to boot from usb, I have 2 1 laptop a Dell XPS 2010 will boot automaticly to USB if it is plugged in and has the option in the bios for boot seqence, and a desktop a dell XPS 720 it will alsi do the same, see if you can find a live copy of XP or the OS of your choise and you can boot from DVDR I have a copy of XP Lite Portable that boots from USB and runs fine
