    How can i installing Windows ME without cd-rom and floppy

    Hi,

    I have a Fujitsu FMV series notebook. Windows 2000 Japnese version is
    installed on same and i want to install Windows Me. But the issue is
    that it does not have any cd-rom or floppy disk drive. It just has a
    USB port and does not support USB boot. Now i want to install Windows
    Me and i am not able to boot it from an USB External CD Rom Drive. Any
    pointers on how can i install Windows Me on this laptop.

    What options are offered for the boot sequence when you boot into (BIOS) setup?

    What I would do is take out the HDD, use an adapter and slave it to a regular desktop...........format then reinstall?

    /joke

    Otherwise I would start taking Japanese lessons

    /joke

    Otherwise, you might just be lucky and it has the Windows 2000 Multilanguage Version installed on it.

    <Control Panel>
    <Regional Options>
    <Menus & Dialogs>
    <General>

    Then <select language>

    Good luck

    You mean you cant change the boot settings in the BIOS?...

    but why Win Me? the Muckedup Edition.......beside the fact it is a version you have....

    honest you will need to get into the boot options in the BIOS.. there should be an option there..

    give it a go..

    His best bet would be to check if he has the multilanguage version? at least he could then stay with Windows 2000?

    You are correct... .. hey a thought.. if the It isnt the MultiLanguage edition.. I dont think ME's fdisk can repartition the NTFS partition... ... but I suspect we wait for a useful reply..
