well, how about lettings us know what type system you have.....specs...etc?, either case...you should be able to create a USB Windows Install, enable 'Legacy USB' in the BIOS, then boot to the USB drive and load your OS from there.....

BTW: you CAN NOT use the restore DVD that came with the system to create the USB install, you need a licensed copy of Windows XP or Windows 7 then create the USB install...do a search on the board here, there are many others who have done this also....
