First of all Hi to all and I hope someone can help, it would be much appreciated.
Ive got a sony vaio VGN-N21S/W dual bootted with windows 7 and 8. Im trying to install the newer version of 8 but my optical drive refuses to work at boot up. Tried with an original windows 7 disc and 9 times out of ten it wont read this disc either at bootup which is strange as it seems fine when reading discs from within windows. So I made a bootable USB pen drive with 8 on it and set the bios boot order to USB flash first and tried with External drive boot enabled and disabled with no joy. So is it possable to boot from USB or not?.
If not is there another way of installing windows 8 on another partition from within windows 7 as when I tried it gave me no option to install to another partition so I assumed it would install over windows 7 which I dont want.
Thanks in advance for any help
