Connection of 2 computers

  FinsGrandad 22:41 22 Nov 2009

I have a Toshiba NB100 which has no attached cd-rom drive and it is playing up, so what i would like to do is connect my main pc to this one in order to install a recovery disc. The reason why i would like to do this is as follows:

As i said before the NB 100 has nothing but USB connections and no cd-rom drive, this is the way it is sold, it does come with a CD recovery disc, which funnily enough makes no sense to me because if this was your only means of computing then how are you going to recover the notebook.

I have tried to do what the instructions tell me to do and that is copy the cd to a flash drive, insert it in to one of the usb slots, switch of the notebook, turn it back on whilst pressing the F12 key and it will take you to the set up and recovery areas, well unfortunately this does not happen. so this is the reason i would like to know if it is feasable to connect the 2 of them together so that i can attempt to work on it that way. Any help would be very much appreciated.

You need to make the USB drive bootable before copying the recovery files to it.
