Get a copy of windows 2000 on a bootable cd.
When you power up the laptop, hold "c" and it will boot off the cd rom :)

I have a old Toshiba Portege 7100that i am trying to boot from a usb hardrive. When i start the computer up it says starting.Then 2 seconds later it says insert system drive and press any button to boot....


this model is too old to boot from a usb version1
maybe you can flash the bios to upgrade usb1 to usb version 2
or, load the ubuntu linux operating system using a CD

Hi,
For that problem, Try first replace that internal DVD-rom drive other good internal DVD-rom drive. if not Also Detected or recognize.
Try this second solution. insert external USB type DVD-ROM. if not recognize also, Your operating system Have internal software device data corrupted. You need to reinstall operating System like windows xp, windows 7 (OS) etc.. to fix data Corrupted of operating system device for hardware software.

I have a Samsung VM8000 the dvd rom does not work is there another way to load an operating system on. I do have an external USB DVD drive. Is there a DOS driver I can down load to use this as I have...


What a lovelly old laptop, I still use one.
The BIOS menu will not allow booting from USB as the USB driver must be installed first and that is run within Windows.
You will need and external DVD rom plugged in through the PCMIA sockets on the left side of the laptop.
There are, from time to time, CD roms from Samsung VM8000 laptops offered for sale on eBay.
You could, of course, remove the 20Gb drive and place it in a caddy, load it as an external drive on another pc then copy the XP disk to a directory. Then replace the drive and try and boot from the rebuilt system you have just put on it.
Hope that helps.

Boot win98


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.

How to reformat my laptop? I don't have Cd rom, no floppy disc, its notbooting in usb flash drive, i dont have external optical drive. Whatshould I do? Thanks in advanced, acer 340t travelmate


If you could go to Avira and download there rescue disk on the flash drive, plug in the flash drive while the lap is off and start it with flash in.

Then you can run the rescue in dos( dos is before windows starts)
You said you could not because of windows, this rescue will scan
the entire hard drive, and if you have something like a rootkit, virus, trojan, Avira will kill it. Avira is the second best anti-virus software
on the planet.

Tap f8 when you lap starts to bring up the boot menu, and pray
that the flash drive is listed.

Bios no option to Boot from usb Cd rom broken


Floppy works right? So you need to boot from floppy disk, install USB drivers in DOS and then access an external USB device... whew. OK, so getting a dos 6.22 boot disk is easy, then you have to load a DOS-level USB device driver that 'recognizes the chipset in your USB controller/port and can turn it 'ON'

Go here and READ ;-) They have everything you need (except for my expert help)
http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm

Good luck!
P.S. There are many DOS-level drivers out there, if you don't find one for your PC, make a noise and I'll see if I can help

1) it may just be a driver issue. look up the control panel / devices. if you see a yellow marker , then the drive is at fault . find the driver and install, then try again.

2) maybe the cdrom is dead , try change to another one.

3) if you dont have spare , plug in an external usb cdrom drive . this way , you can still do the update. many dell laptops use external usb cdrom.

Cant install xp to dell c400 with external cd-rom


This is how I did it, you may or may not have the ability. A basic knowledge of Dos is necessary 1) I used another laptop but you could use an adapter to use the hard drive in a regular computer. 2)boot with a windows 98 boot disk, fdisk it to a fat32 partition, make the hard drive a system boot disk (format /s c:) 3) copy the i386 folder and all its contents from a full or full oem (not branded) disk to the laptop drive, also copy smartdrv and highmem.sys from the floppy (speeds thing up dramatically) and create a config.sys file with device=highmem.sys 4)physically install the hard drive back into the C400, boot to dos run smartdrv.exe, then go to the i386 folder and type winnt.exe (enter) wooo should work.
