Hello. So, I have this netbook with no optical drive and no OS that I would like to install Windows XP on. First, I tried making a bootable USB with Rufus. That worked until the 2nd phase of the install, where it would get halfway through Installing Devices and then slow down a lot, even mouse movement took a lot of time. Then, I tried using a USB ODD, same results. Then I used a Ubuntu Live DVD to make a fat32 partition on the HDD, copy the XP installer to it, boot from a DOS live USB and launch the installer. The MS-DOS phase completed successfully, but it wouldn't boot into the text-based mode normally, and I had to use the DOS USB again, which somehow got the NTLDR MBR written onto it. Then the 2nd phase wouldn't launch at all. I tried several commands to repair the MBR (fixmbr, fixboot and bootcfg /rebuild), but none worked. Attempting to boot from the HDD would result in an error: Missing Operating System. So, how should I install XP on this netbook?
