I have to reinstall Windows XP on my old PC. Installing via USB is the only option - the CD/DVD drive doesn't work anymore, as well as the floppy drive and the computer can't start, the startup just keep looping endlessly.
I made a bootable Windows XP flash drive from my laptop, I tested booting the USB on the laptop and it worked fine, the Windows XP setup started normally.
I plugged the USB in my PC, I adjusted the BIOS boot order accordingly, and the PC refuses to boot the flash drive.
Then I removed all options from the BIOS menu, and I left out USB as the only option (I removed floppy, CD, HDD) to force my PC to boot the USB.
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media. Insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press a key."
What can I do?
