I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.
Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????
Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.
If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.
You would need about 1000 floppies to store Windows XP. You need to go into the BIOS and select the primary boot drive to optical(cd). Then restart with the windows disc in the CD drive. Floppies haven't been needed to install the OS since Windows 98.
try it again with the bootable floppy disk... if you have the option use fdisk /mbr and then format the computer and reinstall using the cd you have. the fdisk /mbr command will get rid of any virus residing in your master boot record.
hi! there,set up exe. that was when your setting up win 98 you have to install that came from floppy disk before you can install win 98.there is an os win 98 in your system you have to delete that previous os before installing another win xp.restart ur computer. press F2 to open your bios set-up . then select bios set-up priority your cd-room drive second,your hard drive. last, quit and save set-up. and then your computer will restart. insert your cd windows xp then reinstall your window xp. delete the previous os then follow the set up on your window xp until you install your new window xp.
Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
When you disable for installation it normally does not work correctly when enabled again. Go to Hp's website and download the SATA software. You will need a floppy drive. The driver for it extracts to the floppy. If your laptop did not come equipped with a floppy you will have to use an external usb floppy. No off brand it has to be a name brand. Normally the generic floppies do not work. Once you have the software extracted to the floppy. Boot the computer to with xp cd. When the blue screen displaysa message accross the bottom with say "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver. The computer will read the floppy and select one of the choices preferably windows default.
Please check If your CD drive is detected on BIOS, if yes then Put a Windows XP bootale CD (checkout for the Service Pack) and choose boot from CD in the BIOS and go for "repair option" after the Agreement "I Agree-press F8" session. complete the installation then try installing the printer.
Hi, i have installed thousands of Internal Floppy drives and there aint no conflicts between win/95/98/me and xp.
all discs should be compatible, unless you took it from a apple machine for example.
did it work when you put in a new floppy drive?
all the best
