I bought an cheap Toshiba Satellite A60 Laptop about 4 years ago. Since then the cd drive has ceased functioning. The bios doesn't allow for booting from a usb stick. Only from a network, cd drive and floppy disk drive. If I plug in an external cd drive, should it be able to boot from this? I haven't bought one and I don't know anybody who has one, or I'd try it. I thought someone might know, before I go out and waste my money on one.
Thanks for you help. If I haven't given enough info about the laptop, I can write more another day, when I can get the info.
