I used WinToFlash to put a windows xp disc onto my 8.0gb usb stick but after inserting the drive, booting from it, I get a blank screen with a flashing cursor (underscore). Does anyone know why this occurs? Oh and prior to this, I had deleted the partition on it, I think I recreated one, but am not sure. Thanks in advance, ell.
EDIT: I can't edit the bios for some reason, it is greyed out but I can choose boot menu and from there I can select my USB which has worked with a live cd of Ubuntu 10.10 but it seems it doesn't work. The laptop is an Advent 4211 and I read somewhere that I need to reset the bios by doing something like holding the power down for 45 seconds or something? Any info on that?
