I have corrupted my winxp and so i get a locked screen on boot up. I wanted to upgrade to win 7 anyways so i thought i would just do a clean install and start fresh. Well lo and behold my Lifebook does not seem to recognize when i plug anything into the USB port?
I can change my startup sequence to USB hd or USB Mem and they both show up as not active in BIOS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I should mention the cd rom drive i tried was supposed to be netbook bootable. The usb hd was a 3.5" drive in an enclosure and a standard 8gb thumb drive?
I am missing something but for the life of me I just can't figure it out.
thanks in advance
