Only got one cd-r drive - can anybody take me through the process?

You only need the one,depending on what copy software you have,all you need do is open your copy software put the OS cd in the drive select copy it should then make an image of the disk then it should eject the OS disc and ask for a blank cd put that in and follow the onscreen prompts.

Sorry, must be snow blindness! - got into my brain to use the right click copy, and forgot all about Nero!

I quote:

"'compact disc'"


"When referring to the IT world, we use 'disk'"

So what is the answer then ??? ;)
