Is there any way to make a Gateway 400VTX laptop boot from an external CD-ROM?

I’m working on a friend’s Gateway VTX laptop. This particular model requires that you disassemble the laptop to remove the optical drive, or I would replace it. God I hate Gateway! Looks like you’re going to have to replace the ODD in order to get it to boot. I did some searching around, and was unable to find a way to boot this model from a USB device. It appears to be a BIOS limitation, and not at all uncommon on machines this old.


Thanks for the research Not only did Gateway design a laptop that requires disassembly to replace the optical drive, they won’t release a service or disassembly manual for their laptops. Did I mention that I hate Gateway?

I wonder how hard it is to replace the ODD? Would you happen to know of a source for the service manual, or at least instructions to remove the ODD?

I may see if I can find one for them. Post some pics of the machine, maybe it’ll jog my memory.

Gateway’s never posted service material online anywhere that I know of. I had a co-worker drop off an “emergency” computer repair, so the laptop will have to wait a bit.

The co-worker’s Dell is about as badly infected with malware as I’ve ever seen Windows Antivirus Pro. You can’t even run ANY executable.

My battery is near death and I never realized that the VTX will not run with out a functioning battery. I was wondering ifsince you will have one open, if its possible to wire the wall charger direct to the lap top, bypassing the battery.


I only use the laptop for web browsing, and palm software, so it never travels. Jul 17, Posts: Sun Aug 16, 8: Dec 30, Posts: Sun Aug 16, 9: Sun Aug 16, Mon Aug 17, BadDobby Seniorius Lurkius Registered: Aug 20, Posts: Thu Aug 20, 6:
