Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Buy a USB external CD unit and use a Windows XP CD to reinstall the system. WHy do you think you need to take such drastic action? Most problems can be fixed without reinstalling the whole system.

When you plug in an external USB powered CD ROM, the additoinal option should appear in boot options. If it doesn't, or better still before you buy one, check in the BIOS settings that USB Legacy Support is available and is enabled. I can't believe it won't be but it's best to make sure before you spend anything.

So long as that possibility exists, the boot options will include a USB device.
