So, I'm a girl, and not a very technical one at that. But I do manage just fine usually, I google things I need to do and it works out ok.


But now I think I've done smthing really really stupid and have no idea how to fix it.


So I was trying to install windows 7 on my other laptop from a flash drive (dvd drive doesn't work) and it wouldn't boot. So I saw somewhere online that I should go into the BIOS/BOOT and change the order to put the USB drive first. I did!


It went into windows setup, I formated drive C, all fine, installed everything exceeeeept... it has to restart before completing instalation and since I did the change in the bios... it starts set up all over again. I feel like the biggest idiot in the world right now!!!! If someone could please give me a hand and explain how to get myself out of this situation and finish the installation process ok, I would be eternally grateful.


Hope I explained the situation clearly enough, english is not my native language :))

Puh-leeeease help me!!!
