Quit posting useless pictures.
We understand that you have no hard drives, but that page is not the page where you set your boot device.
I suggest you get help from someone local who understands computers.
You cannot install TinyCore from CD using this machine unless you use a USB CD/DVD drive.
Either get one, or install TinyCore on your USB flash drive using another computer.
Then set your BIOS to boot from USB.

Hi xor
Maybe you should try asking under  International Talk.

Hi xor
Yes, everyone here understands you want to install everything to a bootable USB flash device.
Use a different machine to set up the USB flash device, then plug it in to the machine with no HDD.
Either install using a CD:

or use the Windows based installer that bmarkus wrote:

Hi xor
Either one of the suggestions in Reply #19 will give you a live USB install. You just have to follow directions instead
of trying unsupported methods.
