You need to access the bios, and set the boot order properly.
What  kind of external cd drive is it? If it's usb, I've never had any luck getting the system to actually load off of one.  The CF-27 came with a pcmcia optical drive, which works pretty well.
I've got a couple of cf-27 cd roms which take the same slot as the floppy. Loaded XP on one of ours.
Good luck.

SOURCE: upgrade hard drive in panasonic toughbook cf-50

1 - Using a stack of DVD RW blank disks, or a large capacity USB Flash/Jump Drive, back up your Laptop computer completely. If necessary, Use WinZIP to ensue that everything has been compressed into the smallest capacity possible.
2 - When you are certain that you have backed up the drive completely, remove the older drive
3 - Line up the new drive and the old drive and ensure the jumpers are set to the same settings as they were set on the older HDD.
4 - Once you are sure, you then restore everything from the back-up drive for the old hdd to the new disk drive.
5 - Test to ensure that everything from the old drive has been backed up from the old drive to the new drive.
6 - If you are comfortable that your backup has been completly restored from the backup meda to the new, larger hard drive, then be certain that you have restored from the older drive to the new drive, tighten all screws and cables, then close all ports and ensure that everything has been done properly by and for you.
7 - Be certain that you have created the same user accounts in the new drive as you had on the older drive.
8 - Now, power off the new drive while in the laptop. Wait about 30 seconds to one minute, then restart the new hard disk drive.
9 Test everything, to be sure that everything works properly. Go through everything from the top of the menu to the bottom of the menu. Try all accessories, try all applications. Ensure that all works right and that the applications work as they used to work, when it was on the old drive.
10 - Remember, you have a warranty on the new HDD, so be sure that you have tested everything to ensure that it all works properly, before you sign off on this new drive.
11 - Once you are certain that it all works correctly, you can then be sure that it is working properly and competely, because only you know if things are working correctly as they should be.
12 - Then you can sign off and you can be sure that things work properly.
13 - As carpenters say ... measure twice; cut once. You can only do this one time, so if you measure it more than one tim, you can be certain that you will get it done correctly and be happy that you did it right. from beginning to end.
Have fun. Don't be too serious about it, but do be careful, and get it right. Remember, get it right the first time, and you will be pleased with the results at the end.

    Cf-29 no operating system


    You will require the internal Panasonic Toughbook CF29 optical drive (DVD). The cost of such a drive (used) in should be $50 or less.

    You will also require a Windows 7 DVD.

    You may be able to download an ISO file and burn your own.

    Try this Microsoft Website:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows7

    You must use the 32-bit version, NOT the 64-bit version.

    Please remember to set the DVD as the first boot device in the BIOS of the CF29.

    That is it. Good Luck and Best Regards from:

    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.

    HOW TO INSTALL WINDONS XP PRO ON TOUGHBOOK CF-18


    XP can not be installed from usb as the bios does not enable it. Plug the ide hard drive into an older desktop system and install from boot on cd. Once all files are copied over then you need to copy the i386 folder over from the cd. Reinstall the hard drive into the toughbook and carry on the install from there.

    Toughbook CF-51 Laptop DVD Drive Problem


    It could be a software or driver issue. First try updating the drivers for the drive, and try either using different burning software or uninstalling & reloading your current software. I had a cf72 with a DVD/CD combo drive that the DVD reader went out. This could also be the issue, if so you'll need to replace it in order to burn CD's.
