    Default Help me install WindowsXP

    I got a new lap top for Christmas Dell Inspiron 9 mini and as you may know it doesn't have a CD drive, but I have an external CD drive to use. When I insert the Windows XP setup disk into the drive it doesn't start the setup it just show me the contents of the CD. I've tried to click on the setup icon with the file extension .exe and it won't start but jeust tell me that there is no application to run the program and i can't boot from the removable devices either. SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE.

    This isn't a Windows forum. Have you tried Google? This is pretty easy.

    Clearly you are not the brightest bulb on the tree since you didn't notice that not only is this a Linux forum, its a specialized security forum. I would try a forum which specializes in rookie windows questions.

    Call Dell, and try posting in a forum that actually supports winders.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    We already answered your question here.
