reformatting with external cd rom, possible?
-Dell Inspiron xxx (unsure of the model number offhand)
-Have tried booting from cd rom, external usb device, and internal hdd
So my scenario is, windows took a dump, internal factory cd rom does not work, is it possible to boot windows xp cd from an external cd rom? I have tried everything I can think of, but I cannot boot off the external cd rom
If not, how easy is it to replace a cd rom in a laptop?
