Hi All
i have just bought a second user IBM laptop with 95 installed (no disk)
and no cd-rom drive.I am thinking of removing the hd ,connecting it to my pc as a slave drive via an adapter,formating it and doing a fresh instal of 98. then re connecting it in my laptop.
Is this possible and if so will it work.

you will also need to make sure you have all the device drivers for the laptop ....can get those and put them on the hdd when you install 98 just dont install them put them in a folder and install them when you put the hdd back in the laptop , i think it will work but not positive...good luck Cool

yes , here is a link to a small prog that will scan that pc and identify all the drivers you will need after it finds them choose the option to back them up so you can put them on a disk for reinstall the program is called unknown device identifier
