Since nobody seems to have an answer to my previous post, here's another one.. Is it possible to install Win2k on a hard drive that is connected to a pc externally? See, I have a laptop hd that is in a hard drive enclosure, connected in a usb port to my desktop. I tried to use the Win2k cd while using XP but it disabled the Install feature because XP is a newer OS. I'm thinking of just getting a 44 pin to 40 pin cable and connect the laptop hd internally but someone might have a way easier/better idea about this. FYI - I want to install Win2k for my old laptop, unfortunately the CDROM drive is broken, however the floppy drive is working.
