Does a floppy boot disk with DVD drivers exist? I have a friend who
wanted to install Win ME on a blank HD with a DVD drive,(no CD
drive),all he had was a boot floppy with CD drivers. I loaned him a CD
drive to make the install, but got to wondering if a there was a
floppy boot disk with a program for booting with drivers for a DVD
Download this and have afloppy ready in the drive, this will create a
ME boot disk
I don't need a bootdisk for ME, I need a boot disk with DVD drivers so
once booted I can access the DVD drive. I have a boatload of bootdisk
that will provide drivers for CD drives, but the problem I was
refering to was how to load ME on a blank HD, with a only a DVD drive,
no CD drive.The installation ME disk is not bootable. We could not
come up with a bootdisk to load drivers for the DVD drive. Finally
installed a CD drive and loaded ME, then removed the CD drive. Thanks
for the offer though,appreciate it.
Unless I'm missing something, why not load the ME CD in the DVD drive, copy
the ME CD to an image file with, for example, NERO and then write the CD
image to a blank DVD?
