View Full Version : How do you create a boot disk in win2k?
02-18-2002, 01:59 AM
I'm attempting to flash my bios, but need to make a boot disk first. I'm running Win2k. I don't have a system with Win98 around to create the disk. I faintly remember using a software, I believe WinImage before, but forget how to do it. Any quick pointers as to how to do that? Thanks =)

Easiest way is to visit www.bootdisk.com and download an image from that site. :)

Figured it out. Used DrDos 7.05 to format. =) :D

With XP, just right-click on your A:\ drive & choose 'format'. There's a checkbox on the format dialog box that says 'make system boot disk' or something like that.
I *think* it's the same way in W2K. Give it a try...

Considering I was just able to flash my bios, now i'm considering upgrading to WinXP too. =)
On the win2k disk...there is a program to make boot disks... it'll make you 4 disks
