How to install Windows from DOS with Toshiba 498CDT swappable drives
Posted on 2004-10-03
I have a Toshiba 490CDT with swappable floppy and CD drives, that are not hot swappable. I needed to reformat my hard drive, and followed instructions from this site successfully up to reinstalling Windows 98. I need to boot from floppy, but install the program from CD. The computer only recognizes the a: floppy drive. Earlier answer said use the boot disk in a: to "enable CD support" but I have no idea how to do that from DOS. I do, however, have a Backpacker external CD drive, and the installation disk. Can I run that installation disk in a: and install it in the system before installing Windows, so that I can use the laptop's floppy and the external CD at the same time? Thanks.
