Using PLoP via floppy drive to USB install Windows XP
Hi,

I have an old Sony VAIO laptop, which is lagging quite bad with Windows XP.
I want to reinstall XP fresh, but the CD-ROM drive on the laptop barely reads the CD (it only cooperates when I push the CD tray into the laptop a certain way).

I looked into using PLoP on a floppy drive and USB booting the XP iso, but PLoP wasn't working for me.

My next option is using UNetbootin's frugal install to install XP.

My only concern is:
-Are there any issues I need to be aware of by using the "frugal install"?

Thanks for reading!
