Asus eee 900HA notebook using C AND D DRIVES

  Bribabby 17:32 16 Oct 2009

Help, I recently bought an Asus EEE notebook configured in Spanish. It has 160 gb memory split into "C" and "D" drives. Windows XP Home in Spanish is installed on the C drive.
I would like to install my XP Professional onto the D drive, but the notebook has no CD or DVD drives. However there are 3 USB sockets. Is it possible to load XP Professional from an installation disk to a memory stick and then to the netbook (D drive), if so, how??
The other question is, can I change the installed language from Spanish to English from within the program ??.
Hoping one of the resident whizzkids can help,

Yes you can use USB sticks

You could try changing the Language in the Control Panel under Regional and language Options. If it will not change in there, the only way would be to remove it and install English version
