Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra 750DVD Notebook ?

I need to install xp, but I don't have Floppy or DVD. My HDD is virgen. I think may be with USB stick, or usb enclosure, or via crossover cable, or lpt1 cable. I DON'T KNOW!!! Can you help me??? My machine is a toshiba tecra 750 DVD, In any case, if I can go to boot the machine (the real problem), I think the rest Is easy, but I neet to boot first, even if is in DOS.


Answers :

Your XP CD should be bootable to begin with.

I don't see a message from BIOS saying that it found the DVD drive, so I think it won't boot because the BIOS doesn't see it.
