Douwe Osinga's Blog: No Floppy Drive

Thursday, October 28, 2004

Today I suddenly realized that my laptop does not have a floppy drive. I needed to create a boot floppy in order to install windows 2000 on a fresh hard disk (if anybody knows a better way of doing this, please le me know), and all I could find was a cd-burner. I suppose we came a long way since Apple came out with the iMac and everybody wondered what you would do with a computer that didn't even have a floppy drive. Now I've been working on this machine for 5 months and I never noticed.
