I sort of running into a problem with one of my older pc its a compaq ipaq Celeron 500 exactly the same as this one
I was planning to give this to my little sister so she can fool around with it but i wanted to upgrade it first before anything. So i decided to throw in a 40GB harddrive and upgrade the memory to 320MB. I also wanted to install Win XP but this is where the problem lies. When i go to the bios to change my boot sequence it doesn't give me the option to even choose cd-rom boot. so i was like...ok. i decied to try floppy but it doesnt give me the optiong to boot from floopy either.
The only option that it allows me is that 1: Hard drive boot 2: Ethernet Network Boot. So i thought ok maybe the bios needs updating so iwnet to compaq website and it turns out that it does. but since i cant boot off of a floopy i cant get the upates to be installed.
I have a working hard drive in there right now thats running win 2000 but the hard drive is only 10GB.
Is there any other way i can get win xp on this computer with the 40GB hard drive?
Please somebody help i've been fooling around with this for like 3 days now
