    hi everyone :) recently I bought an old subnotebook toshiba with windows millenium preinstalled. now I want to upgrade it to xp. this subnotebook cannot boot from usb and it hasn't got a cd-rom drive. I can only boot from floppy. Installing from lan is not possible because I don't have the port replicator. Is possible to install windows xp from the hard drive ?

    It can be done much easier way..

    Just download EasyBCD, install it and open > go to Add New Entry > ISO
    and just mount there ISO and reboot into setup

    where does EasyBCD say that it works on Windows ME??? i highly doubt it does... XP looks like it's the latest supported OS so this suggestion is probably a long shot.
