In windows XP and later the USB mass communication driver are in built, so you can use these devices like USB Floppy drive, USB HDD, Memory card, flash memory etc...

But before windows XP Microsoft did not supply the driver for USB mass storage devices. So, in your case you have to install the Driver for your USB Floppy drive, then you can use this drive as Floppy drive but after complete boot of your Windows 95.

If any problem or more question Just Ask me

Thanks
Iqbal

Toshiba external drive won't instal on Windows 7 Home Premium


Will the external drive work on another computer? Has the external drive been dropped, bumped, jarred? If it works on another computer, shut down the Win7 laptop, unplug, remove battery, remove the USB external plug, plug into AC, reboot, when it is finished, plug in USB.

My laptop is saying Check Cable Connection!


What this means is that it has "lost" the windows installation. Possibly corrupted and possibly a virus
The message you are getting is due to the laptop looking for an alternative boot device, the PXE refes to network boot, the last in the boot order.

What you need to do is obtain a copy of the Windows disc, borrow a USB CD Drive and re-install. When getting to the install windows prompt, let it "find " the windows installation and REPAIR

If you do not have a USB device, the following is your only other option:

  1. You will need the following: Copy of a windows installtion disc; usb pendrive of 2 gb, probably aslo a usb floppy drive and floppy disc.
  2. You will also need this:
http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

  1. Now you need to borrow a computer to download the above software and visit the Acer download page to get the SATA drivers. Extract these to a floppy drive and make sure you have the TEXTMODE drivers!
  2. Run win to flash and extract the windows files from the cd, it will guide you through the process of making a BOOT Usb.
  3. Set laptop bios to boot from USB
  4. When prompted (have the floppy usb drive plugged in), at F6 press to detect the SATA drivers on teh floppy
  5. Follow instructions and you should have windows up and running again

I have a emachine netbook and it say no bootable device


Failed hard drive (assuming one is installed), or could be that it has "lost" the Windows installation.
Possibly a virus, you need to reinstall windows, or hopefully, repair the installation

To do this, as this does not appear to have a DVD rom, you will need the following:
  1. A legit copy of windows (whichever is installed currently)
  2. A spare computer or preferably an external USB DVD Drive (if the latter, skip to the end)
  3. The SATA drivers for this laptop (essential if using windows xp, may not need if vista)
  4. a USB pendrive of at least 4 GB
  5. A USB Floppy drive (possibly)
  6. a copy of win to flash
http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

Uisng the spare computer, extract the contents of the Windows disc to a folder on the spare computers hard drive. Run win to flash and follow the instructions, it will build a boot copy of windows on the pendrive that you specify (it will format the pendrive also).

Copy the sata drivers to the USB floppy drive (you might get away with copying them to the same usb bootable you have just made but I doubt it)

Now, in the bios, set 1st boot to USB drive

Then boot and install, when you reach the F6 prompt, point it to the usb floppy drive and let if find the sata textmode drivers.

Its hould then find your existing windows installation and repair it

IF you ahve a USB DVD / CDROM drive, ignore the above and just install from that, you may need to use a floppy usb to install the sata drivers though

I installed linux ubuntu remix on my ASUS Eee 1001PXB-BK301 multiboot, then i deleted ubuntu after not using it anymore using windows xp disk mangement and found myself without a mbr with grub saying grub...


What you need is SATA controller drivers to be downloaded while starting windows xp disk or ERD Commander.
Since Asus Eee does not have an internal Floppy Disk Drive (FDD), you need to use an external USB FDD.:
Step one: You would like to connect an external USB FDD.
Step two: copy scsi/sata Hardware Access Layer (HAL) Drivers for you laptop to a floppy disk
Step three: during the XP boot process press F6 and follow the prompts to insert a floppy disk with HAL scsi/sata drivers.
Step four: Finish the boot process and run fix MBR.

There is another easy way:
If you can get a Knoppix USB flash drive, you can boot it up from Knoppix and run the following command in the terminal window: sudo ms-sys -m /dev/sda.

Hope This Helps

Need to install operating system on laptop with no cd rom or driv


I believe this model of laptop was designed for Windows 95, which can be installed using only floppy disks. That would be just about your only solution. I would not recommend trying to install XP or anything on it, due to the outdated hardware. If it has a PCMCIA Slot on it (most do) you can buy a USB adapter that goes in there. But, as I stated before, I would just install Windows 95 on it (or possibly 98SE) Good Luck!

Hello dazz_hammer,

You can put up to Windows XP. If do, I would suggest to add memory and bigger hard drive.

Or if the pc has Windows Product Key Tag, and what ever the operating system it indicates then you can re-install that operating system.

Hope this helps and good luck.
