Full Version: Generic Boot Floppy

G'day,
A while ago, I saw somewhere, something about, two (I think) files, that could be put on a floppy which could be
used to start any install CD.
Now when I need it . . .
My current MoBo is a pain . . .
Horse-trading . . .
If things don't improve soon it's going to find out what life is like as a Frizbie. mad.gif
Anybody know what I'm looking for?

Thanks.

I like to use a program called SmartBoot Manager to create a boot disc. It usually bypasses hosed up BIOSes to boot CDROMs or let you pick which hard drive to boot from. You need a working PC to do the initial install onto a floppy:

Here is the homepage for SBM

Here is a link that tells you how to create a SBM boot floppy from DOS/Windows.
