I have an older Dell laptop that i purchased from a friend. It has windows xp pro. after trying to install service pack 2, i found out that it was a blacklisted key. I have a full legal copy of w2k, but i am have trouble installing it on this laptop. The BIOS boots 1: Floppy Drive, 2: Internal HDD, and third NONE. I can't change any of these settings because they are locked by Dell. i also should tell you that I can only have either the floppy or cd-rom in at a time. I downloaded the windows 2000 floppy boot disks, but since the cd-rom isnt in, it cant dectet it and setup quits. The only other thing i could think of would be to use and USB cdrom drive, but i dont own one or really even want one. Am i stuck with this ilegal winxp or can i install win2k with out buying a USB drive? thanks in advance.
