I'm assuming that you mean that the computer itself has no CD or no Floppy drive.
If there is no operationg system, and no way to actually install one, then you are out of luck.
There are external CD drives, but these normally run within Windows--although your computer may allow for their use on startup.
If your computer is new enough and you can enable legacy USB, then you could theoretically copy a Win98 install CD to the USB drive and boot from that.
If you have an operating system installed and your network is running, you can share a CD on another computer and run the setup from that computer by copying the files across the network.

Hi, I've got a Toshiba Portege M205-S810 without CD-ROM drive. Only slots fro USB and SD Card. 1. How to boot up this tablet from SD card? SD card is empty. 2. How to make an image of my CD with Win XP...

If you want to use an external cd drive these are the ones that will work and only these..
The procedure is getting into BIOS settings (press F2 on start ) and on boot sector select the external drive as boot device )
If you want to boot from a SD card or USB memory stick ..than you have to make a boot-able one ..and from what I tried is kinda tricky to make a XP one..so you might consider to install windows 7 if the Ram memory is at least 1 G
But if you want to try ..here are some resources about how to make such a boot-able flash ..
here is for vista and 7 if you do nto have the cd drive ..use a virtual one like iso hunt
http://www.intowindows.com/bootable-usb/
Here is an xp ..and the tools for making a boot-able stick ..read carefully the instructions ..
it was made to install a asus eee which is also a non cd drive net-book
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/windowsxpusb
They recommend to select teh boot device on each restart ..I say to check the bios and see if the boot from usb is available and select it first boot device throughout the installation ..

How to install win xp in toshiba portage r200 laptop


This is resolved by installing Intel Storage Manager drivers through "F6" option on XP Setup. YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK (A Drive)...as the Portege doesn't come with one...and XP does not support USB or CD ROM for this particular function.

You should provide either CD/DVD rom to boot your sytem in bootable disc.
And you should provide windows XP/2000 bootable disk.

You will need:

CD/DVd Rom
Bootable windowsxp/2000 to reinstall your system.

Note; reformatting or reinstalling your system all files will be remove. you should back up important files before doing.
