I know this must be possible but I cannot actually find it on the internet with steps. I am trying to load Windows 98SE on a laptop that has no CDRom...and of course, my copy of Windows is on CD. I think it must be possible to attach a Desktop with cables to a Laptop and use the CD Rom in the Desktop to install Windows on the Laptop. Anyone tell me step by step? Thanks.

Hey doug, just glanced at your question I have an idea. First off you have to be familiar with taking apart your computer.
You know on a regular home PC where you can take a blank hardrive, auto recognize it in BIOS, and then copy your files onto it once you boot up?

I think you can do the same thing with you laptop
hardrive (hook it up to your PC), all you need to do is buy a laptop hardrive connector X-over to regular PC hardrive connector adapter. which you can inquire about at any computer store and then you can do the same thing as mentioned I above
(with this adapter the laptop hardrive will look like a regular hardrive to your PC
