this must be an HP computer; you hit F10 and it goes into "restore mode"

Looks like you did everything right up till the F10 point................lol once you "restore" the system, of course you will have to rename the computer; it's like going back to "day 1" when they bought the system.

Install the software for the USB card again, then shut down; once the computer gets past the POST, insert the USB card and allow Windows to recognize it. If the system reboots..... DON"T PRESS F10!!!!!!!!!!!!! Press F8 and select Last Known Good Config and think about getting a new USB card...............
