If I don't have a disc drive and I need to install something from a disc

#1CheezyPuffPosted 7/26/2014 9:07:02 PM
is it possible to put it on another computer that has one and copy the contents over to an external HDD and install it on the computer without a disc drive?

Yes. If it's loose files then it's just that, if it needs an .iso then you can mount it via alcohol or equivalent.

If both computers are on the same network, you can share the drive and read the disc on the pc where you need it from the other PC through the network, is slower but saves some trouble if you don't need to read GBs of data.
