I recently purchased a Toshiba Tecra 510CDT laptop. It has a swappable CD-ROM and Floppy drive. I am trying to install Windows by booting my computer from a floppy. The problem is that it can not read the CD-ROM drive because it is not "plugged in". I can't pop in my Windows CD and install it because the computer does not recognize that drive.
What do I do?

Hi sportsguy15, welcome to TSG.

You need to make the hard drive bootable w/cdrom support.

The easiest way would be to boot with a windows 98 bootable floppy disk and copy all the files from the floppy disk to the c:\ directory. Take the floppy disk out, swap to the cdrom, restart the computer, you should have an option to start with cdrom support, and go from there.
