hey, i have a huge problem
i tried installing vista on an old laptop, and now i cant access it because the hard drive can't support vista. whenever i try and turn it on it says "Disk error, press ctrl alt del to restart".
So i'm trying to reinstall windows xp on there, but the laptop's cd drive is broken. So i bought an external CD drive, and connected it to the laptop, and tried booting it from there, but BIOS didn't sense it. is there anything i can do to make BIOS recognize the USB external CD drive?
