I thought this would be way easier to figure out, but have looked everywhere on the internet (including these forums).
Is there a way to reformat the dell mini (9) without a external dvd drive? It says right in the quick start guide "Your computer may or may not have an external optical drive. Use an external optical drive or ANY EXTERNAL STORAGE DEVIDE for the procedures that involve disks."
but HOW does one do this. I hate when computer manuals explain every last click, but then says stuff like that with ABSOLUTELY no explanation.
I currently do not have any other windows PCS to help me. All I have is a mac. I have several USB thumb drives. Is there any way to use the mac to get the cd on a thumbdrive and use that? I'm at a loss here. Thanks!
