I have a HP Mini 210-1000 laptop that can no longer find the boot sector. I can’t get it to boot from my external DVD ROM. I didn’t get a Rescue Disk with it, I need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows 7. I’ve read that this can be done by using a flash/thumb drive.
The computer has 3 USB ports, 2 on the right side and 1 on the left. Can anyone advise me about how to do this?
