There should be a boot menu with options a few seconds after you hit the power button, choose Windows if you want to boot into that.

And @iPwn, lol. Did it work for you?

now if I were to buy a USB hard drive adapter to run my hard drive from my broken laptop to this desktop, could I run Windows and have everything essentially the same as before, just on a desktop and not my laptop? Like would all my stuff and Windows run and boot fine? Sorry, I'm not super computer savvy.

Don't give up just yet. Have you tried the site I linked to get the USB to become bootable? If so, did that fail? Did you try what The_Lucas suggested in removing U3 from the SanDisk drive? I would remove the U3 component from the SanDisk drive and the follow the steps on the site I linked. See if that works.

@The_Lucas, I'll pm you as we've taken this thread off topic enough

Problem solved! I went a completely different direction and found a Dell system restore disc, ran it in WINE, and booted and installed XP. I think my eMachines thinks it's a Dell.... Anyways, I have no audio :/ The internal speaker works and after about an hour of googling and frustration I can't really figure out what to do. I can't even open volume control because it says there are no audio devices connected. iTunes detected that I have no audio either. What can I do?

Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / W Series / W3503

Click on the above link, then click on the drivers tab (on the left) and install the appropriate sound driver. Note: there is a hardware vendor detection utility you can download to help you choose the correct driver.

Let us know how it goes...
