I have an older computer that the cd part works but not the dvd part. Since I also needed to reinstall XP with the recovery disk (b/c of the set up, a regular XP disk won't work) I tried using an external dvd drive, but that didn't work and after some research found out that doesn't work on that model.
I've tried making a bootable usb stick with the HP tool, but with FAT types, the computer says it is invalid and it keeps saying can't format the stick if I do NTFS.
So I think I've gone through every other option except this. Since the recovery disk (two of them) are dvds, and only my cd player works, how can I spread the dvds over multiple cd's?
I've tried looking for other related topics, but nothing that really worked for me.
