Installing FTM without CD Drive in laptop

Installing FTM without CD Drive in laptop

My new laptop does not have a CD drive so the installation disks are of no use. Can I download it somehow and install it from what I download?

Find someone that has a CD drive, and then copy the CD to a USB thumb drive, then you can do the install from it.

Or if if you have a local network set up, you may be able to install it across the network.

I have a small in size external 1 TB USB drive, I have used it to copy program CDs and DVDs to and can carry it with may laptop. So if I need to do a reinstall or repair while on the road I can.

This is one of the "Pains" in owning a "NetBook".
