I have a fairly old computer someone had asked me to wipe out so I put a copy of XP on my flash drive and put it in the computer and tried to boot from USB. After I booted, it completly skipped the USB and went right into windows. So I put my copy of XP in the CD-ROM and it did the same thing. So I figured I would just run the setup while windows was running which it did, then it restarted and came up with an error saying "presetup.cmd" file not found and "setupORG.exe" file not found. I tried using another copy of the same XP disc and it got to the screen where it says "Press Any Key to Boot from CD..." however after hitting every key on the keyboard it still boots to the XP installer which has the missing files.
I don't have any more discs I can use and I know I've used a USB to install XP on this computer before. There is a list of USB devices to boot from and none of which seem to work. The list is:
Does anyone have any ideas why this I can't boot from USB or why it won't boot to the CD when pressing a key? I can get to the BIOS and do everything else with the computer while its booting.
