installing XP on eee 701sd?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys
So I've tried for a few hours to work out how to install a Nlited XP via a usb drive to my eee pc 701. I have a patriot XT 8gb and I tried several guides. I used diskpart to place a boot sector on the drive and coped the files over. It wouldn't boot. Ive tired just putting the iso on there, using a Linux boot utility hoping it would get me to a prompt where I could run setup, petousb and usb_prep (wouldn't work as the guides syntax wasn't being accepted by diskpart and it wouldn't allow me to make the partition i created active, even when I found out the correct syntax) and I'm just extremely fed up I do not have a usb optical drive. I probably wont till next week at the earliest so, id love it if somebody could point me to a 100% working no bs guide to get XP onto my eee. Thanks!
