    Ok. Just answer these and I can tell you quickly how to proceed.

    1)Are you just trying to upgrade to Windows XP?

    2)Is your pc working ok right now?

    3) Are you having any problems?

    4)Is this maybe a new clean hard drive?

    Basically I'd like you to tell me the situation. If there's a problem tell me what happened and if there isn't just tell me that. I'm just asking these so I can assist you the best way. Thanks.

How do i remove windows 98 from my cf27 and install windows xp


Boot up with the Windows XP installation CD (you will need the Product Installation code) then proceed to install Windows XP follow the instruction to delete the existing partition - create a new partition - then Format the partition (not a quick Format) - this will wipe the hard disk and install a clean Windows XP system.

Can not install os, computer says no hard disk installed


This laptop has a SATA hard drive.
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Is a Panasonic CF 27 Toughbook able to have Windows XP installed on it or would it create conflict? Presently, it has Windows 2ooo installed.


This is taken from Microsofts website directly...

These are the minimum requirements for basic functionality. Actual requirements vary, depending on the system configuration and the programs and features that you choose to install. If you are installing Windows XP over a network, you may need additional available hard-disk space.

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are:
  • Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
  • At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
  • At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
  • CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
  • Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
  • Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600)or higher resolution
  • Sound card
  • Speakers or headphones
And from what I have seen (THANK YOU for the model #) your system SHOULD be able to run it at bare minimum.

Can I install a hard drive with out caddy or run the machine from an external drivve?


Yes, you can.
Connect your hard drive and installed the operating system and drivers,
That's it,Connect the hard driver whenever you want to boot from that Hard Drive.and change the BIOS to boot from that hard drive in Hard drive boot priority.

Why not you considered booting from a USB Pen Drive.It's most flexible than booting from an external Hard Drive.

Here are fews link on how to make a USB bootable Windows.

Cant run Toughbook on Xp for some reason


It could be your HDD or DVD drive problem.

Try low level format your HDD and re-install XP again.

If it still problem come again then try clean the laser unit of the DVD drive or replaced another one if you can.
