USB to boot iso on computer startup
I have a linux iso that i want to boot up on my windows xp machine, and i dont have a cd burner, so i decided i want to use a usb flash drive instead. after downloading an HP tool that supposedly makes the flash drive bootable, i run the program, restart my comptuer and change my bios to boot from the usb. there is a usb-fdd, usb-zip, and usb-cdrom option that i can set to first priority. i set all of them and after many tries, still no linux starting up. any one know how i can make my flash drive boot up with linux? My computer doesn't have a floppy drive, so any method using floppies is out of the question.
