    What so you want to make a bootable cd so you can boot a OS, like you can do with windows 98 using a startup disk-floppy?

    CD device

    Is your CD device behaving properly? I created many CD Start Up disks with no problems at all.

    Question

    Mex,

    Creating a Start Up CD isn't very easy to do. You need special DOS drivers for your PC's CD-ROM drive to run under DOS. Windows 98 and Me boot disks automatically install generic DOS drivers that work with many, if not most, CD-ROM drives.

    Why can't you use a floppy start up disk?

    If you have like Nero, you can make one pretty easily, it is one of the options when creating a CD.

    don't forget to change the boot options in your BIOS to boot the CD before the HD...

    Oracle is right!

    Well I'll just be Got-Da#%ed!!!! I never saw that option until I just looked into NERO. That is the quick answer Mex...

    thanx guys for the reply. talking about that Nero! i have both the burner and express but can't find an option to create a startup disk. Of course i found an option to create bootdisk!!! but that doesn't help the last time i tried.

    which one are u talking about, oracle guy. Thanx craig but i found that link to be of something else! thanx anyway. floppies get corrupted too often.

    I prefer doing this with Nero Express.
    • Create a start up floppy
    • Open up nero express
    • Select Data > Bootable Data disk
    • Add the files you want to add
    • Insert the start up floppy
    • Burn your cd

    When you PC starts insert your CD. Make sure it's configured to boot from CD in the Bios options. It behaves exactly as if your floppy is inserted in the floppy. You'll still have to change drives to access the files in the CD though.

    Just create the start up disk in windows. Start > Settings > Control panel > Add/remove programs> start up disk ... in windows 98.
    Then go through the steps I outlined. You can leave out step four since you just want to create a start up disk. Step 4 is for when you want other files to be available on the CD. Hope this clarifies my earlier post.
