Hi,

There is couple of things you can do. Do try them.

First,
Attach the USB drive and restart your PC, and hit "Esc" button repeatly until it show boot menu. Choose to boot from the USB drive.

If it won't work, try this one :

1. Reboot.
2. Press F2 to enter Bios Setup Utility
3. Go to Boot Settings
4. Search something like Hard Drive Boot Order
5. Use the + or - key to move your USB drive to the top of the list
6. Press F10 to save and exit

Then follow the previous instructions and give me the file ;)
This is really out from my expectation. I will try my best to help you :)
Perhaps it would be time consuming. I hope you can be patient.

Thanks!

Ok so i repeatedly hit esc, and for a second i saw a screen where it says hit F2 for something. Anyways after hitting esc so many times I enter into a screen where it asks you to chose where you want to boot from. I chose usb flash drive.

Now its just a black screen with blinking cursor (or white underscore). The flash drive is blinking too so maybe something is being done. Should I see something by now?

If this means its not working could I just hold the power button to power down the notebook?

Hi,

It's morning in here ;)

Let's wait for 5min if it respond to boot from that usb.
Otherwise, power down, and sequence the boot from usb through bios.

Some of them required another button to enter the bios.

Ok I "tricked" the notebook into showing that "press f2 to..." screen. I'm in it right now so I'll follow the instructions you have on page 3 of this thread.

what a weird thing.. just do your work ok..
There is a lot of problem discussed through the net about that "trick" - removing battery and press F2. ;)

I'm waiting for your file/ or any other problem that arise

Just proceed with previous instruction and provide to me the mbr.zip
