I got a laptop from a thrift store. It had a corrupt windows 98 on it. I formatted the hard drive and now I want to install windows on it. Problem is that the cd drive does not work. It only has usb ports and a dial up jack. I can get a usb floppy drive to work, but not a usb cd drive. I have DOS on floppy. Also, flashdrives do not work. I have: Windows 98 SE Win 2000 Pro Win XP Pro USB Floppy Drive with DOS USB Male to Male Cable USB Ethernet Adapter Is there a way I can install 98, 2000, or xp by floppy, usb direct connect, or usb ethernet? I have another computer that could install by network if that is possible.
