I'm attempting to install Windows XP Tablet 2005 on a Fujitsu Stylistic ST5030 in which the HD was wiped. It won't see my usb CD/DVD drive when plugged in so installing from the CD is out. So I'm resorting to using a 8Gb usb key to install Windows XP. I've followed the tutorial that's captioned above and everything works great up to the point where the GRUB4DOS screen appears and all I see is GRUB> command line.
What command[s] are used to start the installation of Windows XP? The tutorial doesn't specify these, it just references to 1st and 2nd lines in the GRUB menu[???] If there are supposed to be line numbers to select, they aren't appearing....

Any help would be appreciated...

Thank you,

Well, did you tell the BOOT option to boot from USB, cuz you shouldn't be shelled into a command line, it should boot up and say I see an installation disk, where do you want to put me. Is the USB a Bootable ISO?
