How to install Windows on desktop where CD won't boot, not capable of USB boot a Tags: Hard Drives Desktops Boot CD-Rom Usb Storage Squishy435 March 3, 2013 2:11:11 AM Hello, I have a desktop that I need to install Windows XP back on, but I can't boot from the CD (for whatever reason) and the machine is not capable of booting from a USB. What are my other options here? I would like to take the HDD out and install Windows somehow from another system, but I'm not sure if that's even possible or how I would go about doing that. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
