I have a 3½ year old Dell Studio 1555, that I'm trying to upgrade. I've decided to install a 120 or 200gb SSD harddrive, this seems pretty straight forward - so this is not my headache. The diskdrive on the laptop broke about a year ago, when I insert discs it sounds like the arm is moving in a repeating pattern and nothing else happens - I can eject the disc though.
If I buy a SSD harddrive then how do I install Win7 from my reinstallation win7 dvd that I got when buying the laptop?
I'm thinking external diskdrives, maybe via usb - but I actually have no clue if it'll work. Has anyone got any ideas here? - I can't be the only one with no disc drive that has to reinstall a harddrive.
