Default Installing A OS on a Toshiba Tecra 8000 Lap Top

sponsored links

 
Hey
My friend gave me his old laptop as he no longer had a use for it he wiped the harddrive he gave me no cds or floppys with it but i got win 98 boot disc on floppy and win 98 cd now heres my problem.
I switch on the lap top and it says operating system missing so i boot up the laptop with the win 98 boot disc (floppy) and click select option 1 start computer with cdrom support but i can only have the floppy drive or the cdrom drive in at once so the lap top doesent pick up the cdrom drive as its not inserted because the floppy drive is and im running from the boot disc floppy. i was told if i started up the laptop holding down F2 it would bring up the bios but it never so can some one tell me how i can access the bios please

thanks

You can also try using Esc, or even Esc and then F1.
