Im thinking of getting rid of my floppy, due to the fact that only ever really use it to boot to dos if im going to flash my bios or if im going to use the partition magic boots disks to create my hard drive partitions before i do a fresh install. (which isnt very often)
If i used nero to create a boot iso cd, if i copied the Win 98 floppy boot disk files onto a cd and then burnt them as a boot iso disk. Would it work?
Also the partition magic boot disks are 2 floppies. If i copied both of the contents of two disks to a single cdr and then made that a boot cd, would that work too? I guess it would still prompt me to insert the second disk.
I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work. Make sure you change the BIOS to start from CDROM first though. As CDR disks are only about 20p each these days why not try it. The partition magic boot disks, should also be OK. When it asks for disk 2 just click OK. Can't be sure on that though as I don't use partition magic, I use Ranish (free programme) from click here
click here click here for a description of that file. Don't know why you're looking for it though. DO anyt other problems arise? If not, I wouldn't worry about it. If yes, follow guidaance on first of these documents.
