Default Win2k Pro boot ZIP disk ?

sponsored links
My friend wants to install win2k Pro. I know that the win2k cd is bootable but it doesn't boot off the cd, even though I change the boot sequence in CMOS. Her computer doesn't have a floppy drive just a ZIP drive. Is it possible to create a boot disk on a zip disk?

Errr... I really don't see why that's not possible. However I think that you need to consider why she can't change the boot sequence in CMOS to boot from the floppy. She might not even be able to boot from the ZIP drive.

Get a floppy drive, not cost much.
