If the CD drive is a problem, why can't you do a net install? If you 
also suggest that the hardware is an improvement on the Thinkpad, then 
use Windows to create any boot media you need and try again.

I wouldn't give up at this stage.

Can I just ask though, why do you need a laptop? Is a desktop machine 
out of the question?
