I have an older Winbook FX that has no floppy drive, which at first
didn't seem to be a problem since it supports bootable CDs. Strange
thing, though, I can throw any Linux CD into it and it will boot from
it just fine. Put in a Windows CD (98, ME, 2000, and XP all tried and
failed) and it will NOT boot from it (I know they are bootable CDs
because I tested them on another machine).
I know, I know, some of you will say to just install Linux on it and
be done with it. Well, I did. However, I have two hard drives for
this thing and I wanted Linux on one and Windows on the other. The
hard drives are both empty and non-bootable and with no floppy drive I
can only install Windows by booting from the CD.
Anybody ever hear of a problem like this? Any help would be much
