CF 27 Original Boot Disk

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?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I finally got the save to partition all set...WOOHOO!!!

    Now I need the find out what devices are in my laptop and who they are made by. As I need all the original drivers, due to the fact that my recovery cd/fd is corrupted and no longer any good.

    I contacted panasonic to see if I could purchase the original cd/fd, but they have yet to get back to me.

    So of course once again I'm stuck up that river without the paddle.

    If anyone know's where I can purchase all the original drivers and software, I'd greatly, greatly appreciate it :-)

    It's original OS is 98. The recovery disk I have now all it will do is load the usb for the cd rom. So I know I can get my win98se back on as I do have that, I just don't have the original device drivers to reinstall.

Hi,
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?

Make sure you have all your data backed up
Also make sure you have your re installation disk and proper cd keys to perform a clean install.

power your unit - press F9 for boot options - insert your 7 disk into cd rom and choose boot from CD-ROM. Follow instructions provided from install disk.

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-28 Mk III P3 1Ghz 512Mb Ram , I have installed a brand new DVD rom Drive in the MP Bay it reconises in bios also reads upon first post however, will not boot from any os cd...


Some bios menu allows you to boot from USB. (Some are locked this option by makers.)

Run safety mode and try again to see whether your DVD rom is working.

Best way will be go to device manager; go to properties of DVD rom; go to driver and click roll back driver.

If this is not working (in case), uninstall driver and reinstall it.

The harddrive files seem to be gone and it will not load the OS cd. it keeps saying harddrive not found. what do i do?


Hi,
When you use OS CD it has to boot, there's nothing like it will not load. Check in the BIOS what is the boot option. If your first boot device is hard disk change it to CD-ROM and then boot your PC. Then you can start reinstalling the OS.

Cant get on.keeps saying operating system not found.ihave windows xp.can you tell me what to do and why its doing that?Thanks


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.

yes you can install winxp if you have winxp bootable disk.
Boot your computer with winxp disk.
For that insert winxp disk into cd or dvd rom then when you power up press F8 or F5 or F12 to get first boot option then set first boot as your cd or dvd rom then you can boot computer with disk.

Boot cd problems


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.
