  1. Hello,

    i have a eee pc that is very small and does not have a cd rom drive or even a floppy. I got a virus and its extremely unfunbtional. I tried going into safe mode and running winnt32.exe and it does not want to work. I need to know what i need to do to reinstall my windows xp in safe mode via the i386, then the winnt setup wizard in the i386 folder. Please tell me how i can reinstall my software without the cd rom

    thx

    Use an external drive with all the files on it. Even a flash drive will work.

    yea you will have to use a thumb drive to install it windows is only about 700mb so if you get a 1 or 2 gb you will be fine
