Bootable CD

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a Bootable CD and am not sure about "Emulation Option".

 

I can generate an image from a floppy or use an existing image file.... This is a bit over my head.

It wants me to go to the A Drive and put in a floppy. For the floppy I have two diskettes that say Dell Hard Drive installation. Do I use that? Which I don't think is right.... or.......

 

Should I use an existing image file, and what would that be. I am assuming it would be my Windows XP Pro.

 

Like I said I am a bit over my head. Thanks.

Altho I've never made a bootable CD (the only one I have came with the WinXP computer), I see two terms in your post that make me a bit leery, in view of the fact this is ECDC 5 (basicly, a 1999 program).

The first is "WinXP" and the second is "Dell". You might check with Dell as to what advice they may have.

 

In addition, I believe I've seen this web page referred to on the subject -

Hi Linda,

 

In emulation mode a bootable CD behaves as if you're booting from a floppy disk with CD drivers enabled, so the program wants an image of a bootable floppy disk.

 

You can get bootable disk images of all sorts from here (click on this link), and that page Lynn refers to should help from there.
