i have placed the windows xp files onto the usb using wintoflash . on my laptop i went into the bios settings and chose to boot from the usb. i then boot the usb from the laptop and choose to install windows xp, i have to choose which drive i want to install windows to and i choose my c drive i then have to format the partition that is on c drive. and i get an error " setup cannot format the partition. your computer may not have enough memory to perform this operation, or your windows xp cd-rom may contain some corupt files. set up cannot continue. to quit set up press f3
