I really don't know where to go with this, so I thought someone on here
might be able to help.
I have a Netbook (Toshiba NB100) that has no optical drive. I have a
Liteon external USB DVD/CD RW drive.
I am trying to install XP on the Netbook.
The netbook consistently refuses to boot from the XP CD. It either just
flips into the current OS (Ubuntu) or gives the dreaded "Can't find
And yet - it will boot from an Ubuntu disk perfectly well, AND if I plug
this external drive into my Windows 7 machine, (another Toshiba
Satellite laptop) that machine will boot quite properly from the XP CD
in the same external drive!!!!
Can anyone cast any light on what on earth is going on?
