Hi,

I have a netbook that has windows xp sp2 on it and I want to upgrade it to windows 7 through a flashdrive. I looked up tutorials online, however everything is for vista. The tutorials told me to diskpart select my usb which isnt possible through xp. IS there anyway else to do it? BTW my computer is in chinese (language I cant read) so please tell me window short cut keys and stuff.

Thank you

You can't upgrade XP to windows 7, you have to do a clean install.

Yes. During bootup, go into the bios, select boot from USB drive. That should get you going assuming you have a retail install mounted to USB.
