the Dell Asset Utility from the R109071.exe package can be used to edit or change the asset tag or service tag. But you need either a bootable floppy disk or bootable usb flash drive to run the asset tag tool because it is run in pure DOS mode.

Re: CD rom drive

more specifically, external usb based CD drives can only be connected to USB 2.0 or faster usb ports.
they won't work or work very slowly if they're connected to usb 1.1 ports.
check to make sure your mini-notebook pc uses usb 2.0 ports or higher.
