I'm trying to install windows xp on my toshiba tecra 8100. I have an external floppy drive which I've connected. I rebooted the laptop, and pressed 'a'.
It read the floppy, and I created a brand new partiton using fdisk. That was fine. Then it asked me to reboot, I did, but I also placed the windows CD into the ROM drive.
It didn't boot up through the CD drive, even though I pressed C......And now I can't even use fdisk again, because, it won;t boot up through the a drive.
All it says is:
"Missing Operating System"............nothing happens. All I can do is keep rebooting the computer. It won'y boot up throught the floppy or CD.
And pressing F2 doesn't work either.......nor does F12, nor pressing the ESCAPE key.......
Any ideas please...............
