Good day to you all.
I would like to ask how can I install WinXP in my S10 (no DVD drive)? First, I want to share that I committed the mistake of using it without any anti-virus software installed. As a result, it bugged down. Now in my attempt to reformat it and make it as fresh as day one, I followed the steps on how to make a bootable USB drive. I was not aware that this unit is only compatible with WinXP (I tried to upgrade to Win7). And in the process, I deleted both partitions of the HDD.. Now I'm receiving the message "windows was not able to detect a hard drive.. blah.. blah.." dead end for me..
Can anyone grant me his/her generosity and enlighten me on what to do? Badly need help.. Thanks!
