Parallel Zip Bootdisk.
Posted on 1999-01-04
Ok, this is the deal. I just sold my computer and got some cash ($1500) and an old laptop (xchanged for Tech Support). The laptop is an old Toshiba:
486 DX2 50
350 MB harddrive
I have Win95 (first release) installed on a Fat 16 file System. This is gobbling up tons of MBs and i want to convert it to Fat32. Ok, i got Win95 v. B on CD. Unfortunately, i have no other way to format the harddrive and install the OS unless i have a boot disk for my parallel Zip drive. I can copy the contents of the Win95 B onto a zip disk and install from the zip. But i need access to the zip drive with a bootdisk! Any ideas on how to do this??
It can't be done is not an answer. :)
