I have been trying to reinstall the OS back on my laptop. I have to load that first, then use the cd, which the cd rom isn't being recognized cause it's an external and connects by usb. I have the 1st aid disk from the panasonic site along with all the other drivers. I unfortunately don't know how to use the 1st aid disk, nor can I get the laptop to properly work so I can use it.
Would anyone know where I can obtain the original boot disk for the cf 27?
Maybe if someone knows the original config.sys that's on the disk?
How do I use the 1st aid disk?
And is there anyway to get the laptop to recognize the cd rom?

Re: CF 27 Original Boot Disk
What OS did you load? It originally came with either Win 95 or Win 98. I believe I've got the restore cd for the CF-27 Win 98 at the shop. I could burn you a copy.
BTW, how did you get it to load from a usb cdrom?

Do you have the original start up disc? If so use it. If not there is generally a button to use at start up that will get you to a screen where you can restore your computer to a previous date. The button is usually F10 or F11 or one of the f keys. Also make sure that you don't have a disk in one of the drives. Take everything out and try starting it up. Good luck.
You can't just put the windows cd in your cd rom drive. If your going to change your boot order (to cd), then you HAVE TO use a BOOTABLE cd. That means a bootup disk with all the correct bootable files for WINXP. Same with a floppy. Change your boot order to a floppy....and in order to bootup windows, you MUST HAVE the bootable files ON THE floppy. In your case...the cd. The windows xp does not have the bootable files since it is only used for install and reinstall.
Create a bootable CD or floppy (((from someone elses WINXP pc or laptop))). There is a feature that allows you to do that. Then when you boot to cd it will start windows and give you options.
