Specs: windows XP pro, 1 gig
I lost my internal H/D connector on winbook laptop though I can not use internal H/D. My BIOS don't allow install OS on external drive or boot from CD. What options I have to use my laptop without internal H/D?. I tried several Linux flavors none successful by now.

Are you sure you can't boot from a CD?

Your disk controller/s may be bad then. Or the dead drive is stopping the CD from working. In that case, removing the hard drive completely MIGHT allow booting from a CD.

What disks, if any, show in the POST screens at start up or in the BIOS screens?
