This laptop has no internal floppy or cd drives. I connect external floppy and cd to the usb port but it doesn't read either. I change the boot menu to floppy and cd, all did not work. I connected the ethernet cable from my network to it and it reads alright. the screen comes up with the client mac address. Now my question is; how can I connect a laptop with no operating system to my home network to be able to install the windows xp from the share drive? Thanks for any help out there.
