Load Microsoft office cd on to a netbook

Im relatively computer savvy, but i dont want to buy an external cd drive for the netbook, typically in this situation i would just put my computer into a transfter mode and link up as an external via firewire, but they netbook does not have a firewire port so there goes that option, so my question is can i do the same thing with a usb 6 point to 6 point cable? and copy it that way? or is there another way that i could possibly do it by wirelessly networking the computers i just feel that this would be slow!

Try to network both computers via Ethernet 10/100. Use a CROSSOVER/NULL MODEM cable (looks like a big phone cable), avail. Radio Shack or similar

I will assume that you can set the network for both computers. Please let me know if assume wrong.

My dv 6500 pavillion hp laptop is not registering dvdr-cdrom in my computer but still spins when rebooting


The drive continues to spin every time you reboot the computer, that is normal.If the drive is not able to read any CD/DVD, it means, either the lens that reads the data has lost its life as the player is aged or the CD/DVD is not properly burnt.
If you encounter the same problem will all DVDs then definitely the DVD player lens is dead that it could not read CD/DVD anymore. Its time to replace the player if the spare is available or you can buy an External DVD player from staples or officemax or from any reputed stores.
My suggestion would be to go for external player, as we dont rely on players always.
Also external players are relatively cheap compared to that of internal spare of laptop.

NTLDR is missing


Your windows installation has become currupted. Insert your Microsoft Windows CD and do the following.

When prompted push any key to start off the disk. ( May have to enter the BIOS and select your CD/DVD drive as the Primary boot device or first boot device.) (Since your Netbook does not have a CD drive you may need to use and External DVD drive or get your Netbook repaired by a computer technician.)

Then press enter to install Microsoft Windows.
Now press F8 to accept the terms.

Now you must press R to repair the your currect/selected operating system. By pressing R it will reinstall Windows keeping all your settings and files.

Take your Netbook to a computer technician for Windows, claim warranty support if available.

Take care!

I own microsoft office 2007 how can I download it onto my new hp mini110 which has no cd slot


"I have a netbook with no optical drive. How can I install Microsoft Office? A friend says I have to either buy Office as a download from Microsoft or get an illegal download - don't like either of those options. " Charles C from Iowa among many have asked this question.
There are several options for installing software onto a computer with no CD / DVD drive. We'll focus on Microsoft Office (as usual) but the same techniques can be used for almost any programs.
All these suggestion boil down to a simple truth - you can copy the contents of the Microsoft Office install disk to a folder which can be accessed from the netbook.
We have plenty of other netbooks on Office tips in our feature: Using Office on Netbook computers. Like this article, our feature was written on a netbook computer, so the advice is from hard personal experience.
Install disks are NOT that special There was a time when install disks were specially made so you could not copy them easily but those disks are rare these days. The installation files for Microsoft Office can be copied just like other files.
What really matters is the Product Key that's supplied with your purchase - it's that 25 character key which allows Microsoft Office to work normally. See What happens if your product key is stolen?
USB memory stick The easiest option is to copy the entire contents of the install CD to a USB memory stick or portable drive then plug that 'key' into the netbook.
Make a folder on the USB drive called, for example, Office 2007 Standard install.
Then copy the whole CD/DVD (sub-folders and all) with the root folder of the install disk copied to the new folder on the USB drive.
904-office%20install%20disk%20copied%20to%20folder%20on%20removable%20drive.jpg
Office install disk copied to folder on removable drive
When you plug the USB drive into the netbook, navigate to the install folder (ie what was the root folder of the original CD/DVD).
Double-click the setup program or right-click autorun and choose Install. This will start the install process just as it would from the CD/DVD.
Share a CD/DVD drive On a Windows network, any drive can be shared and 'seen' across the network by other authorized computers.
Go to the desktop computer, right-click on the CD/DVD drive and select Sharing (the exact menu wording depends on your version of Windows) then share the drive with appropriate permissions.
On the netbook computer, go to the Network option on the Start menu. Navigate to the desktop computer then the shared CD/DVD drive. You can then see the contents of the install disk, click on setup or autorun (as above) and the installation will begin.
Apple promoted a 'special' remote CD feature when they released the Macbook Air. It was hailed in many quarters as a wonderful innovation, despite the fact that Windows users have been able to do the same thing for years.
Copy to netbook across the network If setting up the CD/DVD as a network share doesn't suit, you can simply copy the install disk contents to a new folder on a desktop hard drive which is shared and accessible from the netbook.
On a Vista desktop machine the easiest option is copying to one of the 'Public' folders then make sure those folders are shared with the local network. The netbook computer can 'see' that shared folder on the desktop machine and you can install from there.
Alternatively, copy from the desktop CD/DVD to the netbook computer. Make some folders on the netbook shared with write permissions then open Explorer on the desktop computer navigate to the shared folders on the netbook. Copy the contents of the install CD/DVD from the desktop computer to the shared folder on the netbook. Install from the netbook folder.
Plug in a CD/DVD drive There are plenty of cheap USB CD/DVD drives available which you can buy to plug into your netbook. However, as you can see, there is usually no need because you can access an optical drive from a desktop computer via the local network.
Repairing Office In the olden days (ie a decade ago) if Microsoft Office had problems you'd have to dig out the install CD and reinstall.
For the last few versions of Office (Office 2007 and Office 2003 at least) that's rarely necessary. When Office is installed a copy of the key installation files is put in a hidden folder - if (when) Microsoft Office has a little nervy an auto-repair system should start and restore files from the source. Re-using the install disk is less common these days.

I dont have a place to put the cd for my webcam on my netbook and i dont want to download anything but i need it to work


There are three choices:

1. Use another computer to copy the CD contents onto a USB flash drive, then install from the flash drive.

2. Borrow an external USB CD drive, connect it to your machine, and load from the CD.

3. Download the driver from the Logitech web site.

Hope that's helpful.

Sir i have purchase new acer netbook my netbook is asking for microsoft product key


Normally whenever we purchase a new netbook or a laptop computer manufacturers install a trail version of microsoft office products, It seems that even your computer manufacturer has installed a trail version of office on your computer which you can use for a period of 60 days and after which you have to purchase the product.

I have a Sylvania 7 inch netbook SYNET07526 with windows embedded CE 6.0 and we are trying to install Microsoft Office Professional 2007 via an external hard drive without success, please help!


I've got bad news: I don't think it is possible - period. Windows CE runs on an ARM microprocessor. And you have the exact same model netbook I'm using right now. Even if you succed installing that version of Office to an external hard drive and connect that hard drive by USB, this model number of netbook simply doesn't have to computing power (or possibly the right type of microprocessor, either). If you check the Minimum Requirements on Office Pro 2007, I think you'll see that it requires and Intel or AMD microprocessor. You and I are using an ARM propcessor :( Also, I was looking into the likelyhood of expanding the memory in this machine my wife just bought. It's a cute machine' but can not do as advertised. It keeps freezing when we log into Facebook. If I can't expand the memory, this baby is going back to the store. It'll be some little kid's first computer! Good luck!

I have office home and student 2007 on CD how do i load this onto my netbook


You will need to have an external CD drive. Netbooks were designed compactly and the price lower to function more as internet devices than computers. The first option you have is to buy an external USB CD Drive (this is the first recommendation I make, you will need it in the future to look at movies, music cd's, etc and its a good investment ) A very good model that allows you to read and more importanty WRITE cd/dvd's is available at bestbuy for 65$ The link to it is http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Velocity+Micro+-+VMdrive+8x+External+USB+2.0+DVD-RW/CD-RW+Drive/9341107.p?id=1218087882490&skuId=9341107&st=USB CD Drive&contract_desc=null

You have a few work arounds that may work, depending on your technical skill If you have a flash drive and another desktop or laptop with CD drive, you can copy the contents of the CD onto the flash drive using Roxio CD copier and creating an image of the disk. You will need to use make data disk and make Image on your flash drive. The drive must be 8 gig in size or larger (Flash drive). YOu will need to then use flash drive in Netbook. Find the drive and setup file and run. If you are reusing the copy and it is still installed on another machine when you validate it will negate both copies assuming your copy is pirated. So you will need to make sure you have it uninstalled on other computer. You can also try connecting the netbook to your desktop/laptop with CD drive via Network cable. If you are using Windows Vista on both machines plugging in teh cable should do a self detect. The netbook should show up as a device in COMPUTER on your old machine. You can then insert the CD and try and change the install location from your old C: drive to the Netbook. The other option you have is to contact Microsoft directly. They can give you (email you a link) to a full downloadable version once they verify you have a valid license. You will just click on this link via your email on netbook and it will download the software directly to your Netbook. Go to this link and under Products section choose Email or Chat with Microsoft agent. Then tell them what you need and provide your license key in the email or chat for verification you have a licensed product. http://support.microsoft.com/gp/ContactDownloads

I have a copy microsoft office home & student with the product key. I want to install it on my new netbook pc, but it has no cd drive!! Can i down load it and use the product key that I have?


Hi,

Could you possibly copy the CD to an USB drive (you would probably need one that would hold over 500 GB)? They are pretty cheap now. Then you could plug the USB into the computer and install from there. They also do sell USB CD rom drives. Please let me know if you would like further suggestions.

Thanks

Installing Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 on a netbook


If you have a 1GB or better USB flash drive and a friend with a desktop computer, you can copy the program from the disk to the USB flash drive and use that to install the program. USB flash drives are inexpensive now if you have to buy one and come in very handy in the future. USB flash drives are commonly called thumb drives.

How to load programs onto netbook


If you can't get an external drive, then download a (free) program such as Daemon Tools to your desktop machine and make an "image" file of your Office CD on your desktop, then copy the image file (typically in .iso file format) to a USB drive, then download Daemon Tools to your netbook, plug in the USB drive with the .iso image file on it to your netbook, then use Daemon Tools to "mount" the iso image as a "virtual CD" drive and install Office that way. Sounds complicated but it's really not -- Google "Daemon Tools" to check out that program --
