Hello, I have the following problem and i hope you could help me. I have searched a lot on the internet, but wasn't able to find a solution. So... I recently tried to install Windows XP on my "emachines" notebook, i changed the BIOS settings to boot from USB and i even presed F12 to eneter the boot menu and chose to boot from the flash drive, but then nothing happened, the OS just continued as usual. Btw i made a bootable USB, ofcourse. So after I tried a couple of differend ISOs i found on the internet, I decided to try booting Ubuntu, and guess what? It worked! But i still wan't to put XP on the notebook, so any ideas would be very much appreciated! :)
