Question about Computers & Internet
I like to create a back up image after doing an install. I would like to find instructions on how to make it self booting so that software used to create image is not required.
I use a program named Paragon Backup 8.5 which does 'hot backups' . I alternate between two external drives. One always creates a startup CD. This program writes in ISO format and can restore your computer to where it was when the lights went out.even if you have to install a new hard drive. This may not be the solution you are looking for but it works for me.

Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.

Create Windows XP Setup diskettes
Microsoft is beginning to phase out bootable floppy diskettes in favor of bootable CD discs and has not included a method of easily creating a bootable floppy diskette in Windows XP or from the CD. However, Microsoft has downloads available for users who still need to create bootable diskettes to install (not upgrade) Windows XP. These downloads can be found through KB310994.
