Using Wyse V90L as kitchen computer.

Using Wyse V90L as kitchen computer.

I got a free LCD monitor from work so I bought a V90L on eBay, thinking I could use it in combination with my home Windows 7 desktop to access recipes and music etc in the kitchen. Have I made a mistake (I'm not an IT professional but a reasonably competent user)? It appears that the V90L I have was previously booted off the network and doesn't have Windows XPe installed on it.

Am I correct in thinking that I need to use Wyse USB Firmware Tool to put one of the images available here onto a USB flash drive and then boot from that flash drive as a 'USB-Zip' in the BIOS?

When I do this with "XPE WFR2" (second download on page linked above), I get the error

'Remove disks or other media media.
Press any key to restart.'

Pressing any key, causes the message to appear again, and so on.

My V90L has a 512 MB flash drive and I want to use a Belkin wifi USB dongle and Belkin blueooth USB dongle with it.

RE: Using Wyse V90L as kitchen computer.

I found that using a different flash drive resolved the problem. Some drives can be booted from and others can't.
