How do I get one?
Good site. Use it all the time.
Dont make me look like a jackass or anything..
which operating system do you need a boot disk for?
most you can create a boot disk, but going into control panel/add.remove programs/third tab over is create startup disk.
not 100 percent sure its this way with winXP or win 2000 but 95/98/ME are like that
Not with XP.
wtf would u want a bootdisk for anyway? unless ur using like an olllld ass win 95 or like win 3.1 or something...just go to bios and have it so that u can boot from cd..start the pc with the install cd in the drive..presto.;..it will ask u if u wanna boot from cd.
Yup, Boot disk's are a thing of the past, even win98 second edition was a bootable cd. hopefully your pc isn't so old it doesn't have the optiong ot boot from cd.
boot disk's are good for FDISK if you need it thats about it
I take it you guys don't work in the IT field.
There are TONS of aging computers out there that don't support the bootable CD standard not to mention you'll often find yourself in a situation with no access to a CD burner to make a bootable CD.. oh and the most ironic thing?? To make a boot CD, you need a boot floppy to use as a source
This is true, but the "LEAGAL" copy of Windows 98 second edition and above are all bootable from factory. So, hence you don't need a boot disk to make those cd's. And anyone who doesn't have access to a cd burner somewhere now a days is in some serious need of upgrading.
By the way, I do work in the IT feild and have for the past 4 years.
IT industry in Bridgewater = fixing the cash registers at McDonalds
Just for the record, I have worked in both major buisnesses in this town as IT, and both were a bit more than fixing the cash at MacDonalds. Although if they asked me to do it I would
But to set the record strraight, there is a nice big hospital here that I work in now, I have worked in the call center that is here and I got my start at the QeII.....you want credentials...how's that?
