First off you will need a valid license for Microsoft Word or one of Microsoft Office bundles. If you have that and you don’t know how to install it without a shared drive on a network or an external drive hooked up to you NC10 here are some very simple steps to accomplish it. I am assuming you have access to another computer that does have a dvd drive in it.
1. Put disk 1 of the Office product that you have a license for in the dvd drive of the computer you have available.
2. Pick a storage median that you have access to. That could be a SD card or a usb flash drive for example.
3. Connect this storage median to the same computer you put the Office dvd in.
4. Open up Windows Explorer and locate the dvd drive and the drive where the storage median is.
5. Using Windows Explorer make a folder called Office Disk 1 on the flash or SD drive. If this is an empty disc this is not necessary but it just makes for a less confusing method.
6. Now in Windows Explorer open the drive where the Office disc is.
7. Select all the files on the Office disc and then copy them. (Ctrl A to select all, Ctrl C to copy) (or right click on your mouse offers these choices)
8. Now go back to the drive where your storage median is and open the folder you created called Office disc 1.
9. Paste all the files you just copied from the Office disc in there. (Ctrl V to paste or use the option to paste on your right mouse click)
10. Once the paste is complete, remove the storage median and connect it to your NC10
11. Open the folder with Windows Explorer and locate the setup executable. Double click it to start the install.
12. Follow the instructions in the dialog boxes that the Office install software provide.
Viola..your are done!

hi thanks for the advice…done everything as explained but everytime i went to run it, it was doing parts then saying set up corruptJanuary 6, 2009 at 9:44 pm #168445hufnMember
When you run the install make sure that no parts are selected to be install on first use. If it is, it will look for the install cd when you try to access those features. Otherwise, there is no reason why it should have any problems. It doesn’t need a cd, just copy the files to any storage (usb, hd, etc…) then run setup…January 7, 2009 at 5:48 pm #168442

First, it would be helpful to know what version of MS Office you are trying to install, whether you have a valid license key, and whether or not it has already been installled and activated on another computer.January 16, 2009 at 7:41 pm #168443
its 2003 word and yes it has a valid licence key, and it has been activated on my desktopJanuary 18, 2009 at 3:34 pm #168436scientistMember
If the license is for a single install on one computer (your desktop), then you won’t be able to activate it on a second computer.
The corruption error sounds like the original CD/DVD may be damaged, or the copy you made to the flash drive was bad.January 28, 2009 at 8:46 pm #168451miserlyMember
i copied the office cd onto usb and installed from it.January 28, 2009 at 9:06 pm #168452planetseMember
Running Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 on my NC10 with no problems at all. Plugged in my USB external HDD, popped the Office disc into my Notebook, explored D drive, and selected all the files showing, copped then pasted the files onto my external USB HDD.
Plugged the external drive into my NC10, opened the file that Office was in, clicked on the Install Icon. Sat back till it was installed. Job dun.January 28, 2009 at 10:44 pm #168450Camo YoshiMember
If the USB/networking thing isn’t working for you, you might want to pick up a external CD/DVD drive, I hear they’re pretty inexpensive nowadays.January 28, 2009 at 11:46 pm #168446TCMuffinMember
I’ve decided to use ‘free’ software on my NC10. So, I use OpenOffice 3.0, Firefox, and Thunderbird on my NC10. I use Microsoft Office 2007, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc.on my other computers and have no problems transferring documents from any of these to my Sammy and vice versa.
