|Hi,can anyone help with this please?|
I have a Dell Latitude C400 and wish to install XP Pro on it but here's the problem. It has no built in floppy disk drive and no built in CD Rom. I do have an external usb floppy disk drive but it is not recognised in the bios therefore the lappy wont boot from it. I also have an external CD Rom connected via a pcmcia card but this is not recognised in the bios either. Both devices work perfectly from within the current OS. How can i install a new OS if the lappy cannot boot from these external devices? Is there a way to get the lappy to recognise the pcmcia card in the bios thereby allowing me to boot from it?
Please can someone can put me out of my misery?
