Hello, My E510 desktop needs the xp mse os reinstalled, and I have the dick form Dell. BUT, the boot sequence menu lists only hard drive , usb/floppy, and cd as options available. The system has no cd drive (only master and slave optical dvd). So there is no way to boot the dvd I have from Dell. Unless there is a way to put the os on a usb drive, which is listed as available in the boot menu. So how does one create a bootable USB drive with the dell reinstallation so on it??

DVD drives can read CDs, so just put the disc in the drive, select the CD option from the boot menu, and follow the instructions.
