Easier, maybe, but might not be cheaper. External usb drives are getting way down there.

External Floppy disk drive or External CD/DVD drive. Might be easier to just replace the internal drive.

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.


It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

Comp will not boot after installing a SATA DVD-RW


Perhaps your bios is set to boot from the 1st device it 'sees'.
When you add the dvd drive, maybe the device order gets shuffled up, making the dvd drive 1st. So, you need to check this by looking at the boot settings on the bios screen and change the boot order if necessary.

Hello

OK, at the link below you will be able to get step by step instruction on how to load windows from a USB device.

As for the CD/DVD rom, you will just be able to plug it in, no additional drivers will have to be loaded.

Kind regards

Need to reinstall LGX11 (model X110)


The best option would be to connect the hard disk to another computer which has an optical drive, load the OS into it and return it back to its native PC. Or as you asked, you can check for other solutions too

Sony Vaio VGNNR330E laptop wont start up right even after recover


I think you may have bad sectors on the hard drive which is why it loads the software but then when it comes time for the system to read it, it just hangs cause it can't read into the sectors on the hard drive.

Best way to determine this, try another known good working hard drive and if it goes thru all the way and loads then you know the original hard drive is bad.

Tecra M2 doesn't boot is it a processor problem?


given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.
