    I've certain I've followed the instructed given on the link... even done it twice now :/

    At this point I'm not sure what else we can do.
    Unless you make your CD drive working and try CD way.

    It doesn't have a CD drive :/

    So there's no other way? No other ways to boot it?

    How about this - when starting the computer I can access the "Launchup repair" or whatever, and there I can access the "system restore" I have a restore point which is from before I started this thread. If I try to restore maybe I can start all this from scratch?

    All I can see is this...
    If the USB stick doesn't boot another good working computer it must be something wrong with the stick or you're not doing it right.
    I see no other option.

    You can give it a shot.

    Okay, that didn't work...

    Well, this far I've only used two kinds of flash drives, and those were quite old ones and probably not very good, perhaps not even able to boot a computer with a third-party program... So tomorrow I'm buying a new one, and I saw one which had reviews that said people had successfully booted their computers with it. So hope to god that works...

    Anyways, thank you again for all the help, and your time :) Will report tomorrow to let you know how it's going.

    Very possible.
    Keep me posted :)

    Okay, so I bought a new flash drive, and followed the instructions very thoroughly, but the same thing happened; "Remove disk or other media. Press any key to restart."

    I am sure I didn't do anything wrong, and I even formatted it twice and tried again, but it won't work. Now, if you read this thread I think it's highly possible that the program is outdated, and i have to try a new method (http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=247648)

    Either if you have another program that can be used to boot with a flash drive, or if I use a portable CD-reader and use the OTLPE on DVD-method. But I don't know, will it be able to read the disc through a USB?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have external CD drive it may be worth a shot.

    Okay, so now I tried the external dvd-reader. It found the dvd and were able too begin booting. It started loading and I came to the "Starting Reatogo-X-PE" loading bar. Although, after it was finished I came to a Windows XP startup screen, and after a few seconds I recieved a blue screen... What should I do?

    Thanks.

    See if you can boot another working computer.

    Yep, it works. I got to a desktop with icons and all. So it's definitely working...

    Well, at this point things seem to be beyond repair.
    I think your only option is to reinstall Windows.
    I'm sorry. We tried.
