Specs: Windows XP home
I have an Aspire One with windows XP home, no cd-rom and it automatically cycles to the screen that asks you to boot normally or in safe mode. I have gone into the settings (as i have an external usb cd-rom) and it just sits there when I try and bot from a usb.

Does the cd and usb cd drive work on some other system correctly? Just test to see if it can boot, don't install just boot.

You need to go into bios to check that USB booting is enabled in the boot order and is set before Hard drive.

good call, my hp labtop detects the external cd-rom but tried 2 different cd's and it won't read either of them. Let you know when I have one works properly. LOL
