I have a nettop that doesn't have a CD driver. I need to install an OS with a USB. It came with freeDOS OS and I don't know how to reach the USB I connected to it that has the installation for windows.

You want to make the Windows USB bootable and then boot from the USB stick. You may need to tweak settings in the BIOS.

How do I change the setting in the BIOS? –  idober May 27 '11 at 5:54
    
Check the documentation for your nettop. There's usually a key you press when it's starting up to go into the BIOS setup. Usually F2 or F12 - depends on the BIOS, though. –  Andrew Cooper May 27 '11 at 6:01
