Hello pple, I'm trying to install windows on my laptop, it does not have any floppy drive or optical drive, so there is no way I can load windows than to put the windows on the HDD and make it bootable but there is one problem, I don't know how to do this.

Can somebody please give me a detailed information on how to do this.

Thanks in advance.

does it have USB?

if it has no USB, then there is no way to load windows onto the Hard drive, unless you have another laptop you can connect the HD to.
