    To make a long story short.
    I bought a used Compaq Armada 7800 Laptop from E Bay and it came with NO Operating System.
    It has the Interchangable CD and Floppy drive.
    It's in DOS right now. I want to put Windows 98 on there.
    I have Windows 2nd Edition on CD and I also have a Windows 98
    2nd edition boot floppy.
    I already tried installing it from the CD but the CD drive is not being recogized. When i tried installing the 98 boot floppy it wanted me to boot from the CD. I then took out the floppy drive and replaced it with the CD drive. It didn't work.
    How do i install 98?
    All information is appreciated

    When you use the Win98SE startup disk, it attempts to load a common set of CD drivers. It's possible that your new laptop doesn't work off a standard driver.

    Try checking out the Compaq site to see if your model of laptop requires a different CD-ROM driver.
