Presario X1000 cd rom boot Tags: Presario Boot CD-Rom Laptops Last response: June 9, 2005 12:47 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Anonymous a b D Laptop June 9, 2005 12:47:16 AM Archived from groups: comp.sys.laptops (More info?) I have just aquired a Presario X1000 with Windows XP on it. I would like to change the OS to Win2K, but there is no CD-ROM boot option under the "boot order" menu accessible via F10, only IR and hard drive. I have some boot floppies I made from the install CD, but there are no floppy drives on the Presario. When I start the machine and put the Win2k disk in, the desktop says "the windows on the CD is older than the current version and so the install buttons will be disabled." Will someone please suggest a way for me to install my desired OS on this machine? Thank you, Todd W.

I'm not experienced with laptops, but can't you just format/wipe the disk first? Or does the laptop prevent you from doing that? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
