Having major issues getting a Dell X1 laptop to boot to an external CD drive or a USB drive. BIOS Boot order has been set several times first for the CD drive as first then the USB drive. Windows boots to the desktop in either case. I would now like to consider the onboard NIC card but have never booted to one.
If the NIC card is the first device can I connect via ethernet cable to my router then to my desktop which has a CD drive? Looking for guidance on how to reinstall XP Pro via this route. Guidance sought.
