I am thinking to buy a notebook from my friend. Notebook usually don't have Optical drives installed in them. The notebook that I am planning to buy has free DOS (no OS is installed initially) and hence I wish to install the OS.
How can I install an OS into a notebook that doesn't have an optical drive. I know that it can be done from USB but major software vendors prefer Optical drive has their key distribution. So how the notebook users overcome this limitation?
Let me know for any questions.
