    I try to reinstall windows on a cube kpc568 notebook that has no cd rom. It
    says that it cannot install windows because I do not have a cd rom. I try to
    install it from an usb stick.
    What can I do?

    it can be done but it's a bit involved

    hers is one hit from Google

    If the bios has an option for booting from USB

    I'd plug in an external USB cdrom

    What type of installation media do you have? If you have a Windows XP
    installation CD, you will need a CD ROM to get the operating system off the
    disk.
