I use an external hard drive / dvd player with my wife's netbook.

You can buy it off Steam and download it.

Welcome to the forums.
Hi my last laptop got stolen and now I have a netbook which doesn't have a cd drive so does any one know how I can install the wizards throne and shadow magic? I've been looking all over the net and I just can't find anything, so I would really appreciate it if any one could help me!!
Since your netbook does not have a CD-drive and the original release requires the CD be inserted to run, simply installing the game will not help you, so if you're looking for a ripped version or no-cd crack, I'm sorry but you'll get no help here.

If you're looking for a legal copy which can be installed and played without a CD drive, try any of the following:

Hi briankeane123;
There is one other option. If you have access to another computer that has a CD drive you could create a CD image and then mount that image on your main computer using something like Magic ISO or DAEMON Tools Lite.

These create a virtual CD device that you can put image files into as though it was a real cd drive.

Orrrrrrrr if you have a network/can go to someone's house with a network, share their DVD/CD drive over the network and install from it to your Netbook. I have to do this from time to time for people.
