How to load boot up floppy onto hard drive

  SUPERMAN 23:44 22 Nov 2004

I have an HP Omni 2100 with a shared slot for floppy and cd rom.

It doesnt boot from CD. I can't load the cd rom drivers from floppy because the cd rom isn't in at the same time. Can anyone direct me to some free software to load on C: containing the CD rom drivers etc needed to make the cd drive boot up.

Help gratfully appreciated Its driving me mad.

not too clued up mate but depending on your os might file/export not work?

Are you trying to install windows?

If you got windows working, just copy the content on floppy on to a directory of HDD and swap CDrom and install drive there.
