    Hi guys
    I recently had a problem on here with my CF-1)19k tough book that was locked down.

    But quick update I removed my drive put it in my external read write piece of kit, and did a complete low level format with great success.
    But when I coppied my windows disk over from dos to my hard drive, it boots but won't install any further with out the CF-19k drivers, so it at a standstill.

    I have found the drivers for the CF-19K but they are all EXE: files so there is the problem....

    Now guys is their a way to install these EXE:...files and include them in my boot disk
    So that when windows vista premium looks for them' it can find them and install the drivers, or is there another way.

    ANY HELP PLEASE"""
    Many thanks

    It sounds like you might want to create a customized install disc with all the drivers. something like rt7lite.
    I've never heard of anyone else copying the install cd to the drive and then trying to boot and install that way. (although I successfully did something similar on a tablet pc using multiple partitions).
    You could use something like 7zip and try opening the exe and extracting the drivers, or maybe there is even a better utility for that.
    I also found this:

    Hi
    Many thanks prime for your wisdom on this, it's been a nightmare trying to sort this out, I could strangle my brother for doing this!
    Is this software quite easy to get if you have any info I would greatly appre
    Sorry about the last post, it's this iPad i think the things possessed lol.
    Thanks for your reply prime it's been driving me mad.
    I get so far and then it stops and looks for drivers, but I only have drivers that are EXE: because I could not back up my drive because I was locked out.
    So any advice on this please I would be very great full, as to where I can get the software to sort this.

    Cheers prime

    I have done many CF-19 installs and it has never asked me for any drivers. You should be able to load the OS then install the drivers. If you have a external cd/DVD player then get yourself the restore disk for your model (MK3)
