No joy there... It didn't want to boot off the usb

When running the grub4dos installer and clicking refresh (next to part list) it said: (error message) invalid partition table - if you still want to install, use the --skip-mbr-test... still I continued as per all the other instructions, and when I tried to run the usb key on my main (dead) PC it said 'Missing operating system' and just blinked at me... Any ideas? Is this the usb key's fault?

Okay reformatted the stick to fat32 (with windows disk manager) to no avail. Got the same error message. Or do I need to use the windows partion tool (no idea what it is)?

Although I think I should point out that this USB key is about a decade old. And it's only 64MB... any ideas?

Okay, did all that. Seemed to solve that problem.

Booted off the USB key and then said 'remove media (or disks or something) and press any key to restart'... That was really dispiriting...

Your thoughts?

At least now I know how to make bootable USB keys though.

Did it install grub4dos?

If so did you copy the files from the files folder?

Did you press F8 and select your usb stick?

Yes to all three.

However - I've just found out that (somehow) I'm able to boot off my optical drive if I select it from the boot menu (rather than set the boot sequence in BIOS). I'm trying to wipe my hard drive in the hope that it will get rid of this seemingly rubbish copy of windows on it so I can install anew. I'm unsure of what program to use from the ultimate boot cd - I had a look at CopyWipe V1.14 and when it asks me to select a hard drive it only lists BIOS HD, BIOS HD (detect), USB2 HD, IEEE1394 HD ... no options are in the USB / IEEE1394 but the BIOS HD (detect) option lists 'Hard Drive 0' there with no further explanation... do you think this pertains to my actual hard drive or something to do with the BIOS...?

I'm grasping at straws here

Use Darik's Boot and Nuke 2 erase your HDD, but will need 2 flash the proper
bios else you will still have problems

Holy ****! I think I'm actually successfully installing Windows 7 on it!

As I was saying it now seems it can boot off optical if I choose it from the boot menu, not from just setting the boot sequence. I loaded up the Win 7 installer disk, did a quick format of my OS hard drive, am installing Win 7 on it now, and it's telling me it's about to load up the desktop. No ****ing way!!

I don't even know what I did!

YEEESSSSSSSSS
