Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook
I have an IBM laptop that doesnt have a CD drive,a bit old.I use an external CD drive thats connected via USB.I formatted the harddisk drive externally,but now I currently cant load XP using the external CD drive.what do I do?
Also, if you do have a floppy drive, you can go to bootdisk.com for instruction on creating DOS boot disk with usb support. This will give you access to your cdrom.

If you have a floppy drive on it you are in luck.
That would be the most straightforward way to do it.
Are you able to boot off the external CD?
If so there is another way using the PE , preinstallatoin enviroment.
If not , you said you formatted it externally , which I assume means you have either a 2.5 to 3.5 IDE adapter or a USB to IDE adapter and another PC to format it with.
If you can hook the drive to another PC , you can do the install there , change some hardware settings , run the SYSPREP utility and swap the drive back into the laptop.
