    Default I have been trying to load Win2K onto a 3500. I

    I have been trying to load Win2K onto a 3500. I have attempted to do it via a USB floppy but it doesn't get recognized. I also tried to put W2k onto a HD using a Think Pad, but when I transfer the HD to the 3500, I get errors.

    I have an HP external drive but that is useless without a system and drivers.

    I even tried W98 on a HD via the Think Pad but when I put it into the 3500 it asks for the CD in order to apply the correct settings to the 3500, (I can get start up in safe mode).

    I have come the conclusion that I need to get the proprietory floppy drive from Fijutsu as the only way to do it.

    Am I correct? Are there other means?

    Thanks!:(

    If you copied all of the Win98 install files on the hard drive and it's already in the 3500 then just point to that location when windows wants to adjust the settings. If it wants some other driver it will probably be the fujitsu drivers so have them on the hard drive too. Point windows to this folder if it doesn't find the files it needs in the Win98 location.

    When I had to install win2k on a 3400 I took the disk out and stuck it in a desktop PC. Copied the entire CD of win2k onto the hard disk and formatted the disk to boot windows 98 in dos.
    Stuck it back in the PC, ran setup and all was fine.
