Possible to flash BIOS/Install XP from Flash drive?
My carputer is been acting funny lately, crashing sometimes after resume from standby, and sometimes not POSTing upon resume/boot. (all I get is the blue/white VIA splash screen as it locks up). I think I am going to re-flash the BIOS to the latest version, and reformat the HD, then reinstall XP. I looked in the system log, and there are no entries in there that I think would cause the problems.
my system info is below:
Win XP Pro
VIA SP-1300 (bought it just as it hit the market)
No CD drive (two external USB ports)
Question is, can I flash the BIOS using a USB flash drive?
Can I re-install XP using my flash drive (XP .iso on 1Gb flash drive)
I don't have a CD drive available, but I do have a laptop, External 300Gb drive (USB). Can I se either of these to help re-install? Thanks.
