Question about Computers & Internet
You can make a startup CD instead of a floppy disk. First you have to open the BIOS and set the CD Rom drive as the First Boot seek drive.
Then follow the following steps in creating a bootable CD:
1. Create a bootable floppy disk that has all required driver and start-up software on it. You will need a CD driver in order to use the CD in a conventional manner once the system has finished booting. It is wise to use a generic CD driver if you plan on using it in a few different systems.
2 Make sure that any path names in the config.sys and autoexec. bat files do not specify drive letters.
3. Make sure your boot process does not attempt to write to the disk. Set the read-only flag on all files and write-protect the disk if possible. If your system tries to write to the CD on boot-up, it will crash.
4. Test this disk thoroughly in whatever PC environments you wish to use it.
5. Once you are happy with the bootable disk, create the CD with your CDR publishing package. Selecting the "bootable" option will usually prompt for the floppy disk. Put any other data onto the CD in the same session.
