Are you saying that you don't see your cd-rom while your in windows? If this is the case, lets try to check if your cdrom is actually detected by your BIOS. Try doing this:

-completely shutdown the computer
-when you see the DELL logo, press F2 key on your keyboard
-your in BIOS whenever you see System Setup Utility on your screen
-scroll down to DEVICE INFO and check for removable media.

If you have questions or if you need further clarifications. Just message me

Thanks

It's a common problem when a OS upgrade is done. Open the Device Manager, how many "Unknown Devices" are listed? In Device Manager under Network Adapters is the Wireless device listed? Try here for the Win 8 Pro 64bit drivers: http://www.sony.co.in/support/product/sve14112en/download

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook P-2040 that I just reformatted. I'm going to install Windows 2K Professional (don't have the restore disks for XP Home). After I reformatted and restarted, nothing happens. There...


Is there any reason for your preference for Win 2K over Win XP Pro? XP Pro would be a better choice over Win 2K.

You may be able to selecting the CD as the alternate boot device by pressing F12 as the laptop is booting up.
I am not familar with BIOS key on your laptop but you can try these keys on a cold boot up (don't use a warm boot up - Ctrl+Alt+Del keys). Try:-
Del
F1
F2
F10
Ctrl+F1 or F2
Alt+F1 or F2
Esc+F1 or F2
Once you get into the BIOS you can change the boot order, set the CD as the first device. You should be able install Windows from the CD.

If these keys don't work go to the Fujitsu WEB site to download the manual, whilst you are there you will also need to download the drivers for your model laptop the Windows version of the devices that are installed on your laptop eg. audio, video, modem, LAN etc. These need to be installed after the Windows installation.
