Default Creating a boot image for win98se

sponsored links

 
Philips pcrw 1408
nero6 ultra

Hi

Ive got a laptop with a dodgy floppy drive.

I need to put win98se onto the laptop. i have the win98se disk but obvoiusly cant put win98se on as the floppy os dodgy!!

i have tried to create and ima file from a windows 98se start up diskwith unidisker but it saves it as an img, nero states it needs an ima file. Even so i used this as the boot image under nero burning rom and bootable cd.

I tried the cd in my pc and it comes up with invalid system disk??

Can anyone help me out to creating a BOOTABLE win98se disk without the use of the floppy disk??

in anticipation

col

P.S. if there are any spelling mistakes blame it on stress!!

Are you using floppy emulation when creating the boot disk in Nero?

yes 1.44mb.

It copied the floppy at the start and the inw98se cd after.

on reboot ut still came up with invalid system disk.

i created the bootdisk using win98se create boot disk under control panel/ add remove programs. This Failed.

i then tried to create the ima file and did the same suing nero boot image under floppy controls.

I use the instructions from this site and create boot CDs using floppy emulation.

***********.bink.nu/bootcd/

If you follow the burning instructions exactly, except change from "No emulation" to "Floppy emulation" and remember to change the "Number of loaded sectors" to 4, then you should have no problems as long as you load the proper boot image from the floppy.

I used this to create bootable CDs of Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows Millennium among other bootable utility CDs.
