I find them for 8 to 99 bucks which is a bargain compared to the new laptop or ... how many hours (days) are lost trying to work around this.
Let me be clear. I won't discuss how to do this without a working drive.
I have a Compaq Pesario Notebook.. It has 20gb hitachi hard disk and
its cd drive is broken..
So i cannot use my Win2k bootable installation cd on it.
I formated this hdd from my desktop using a ide to usb converter.
Now how do install win2k on it, is there a way by which i can copy the contents of win2k bootable cd onto the hdd and put it back in the laptop and sum how get it installed..
plz help, r there other ways to get it installed?
