You will still need to use an original or a demo as a boot disc. Here is the info:

I use this method on my 1001 PSX, But it works on all models even PS1
The Double Swap Method [Fairly safe but pretty tricky]

Do not kid yourself, this method is difficult. The end result is well worth it (especially if you have no other options).

Note: 1x and 2x refer to the CD motor speed (single speed and double speed), watch a few of your games boot up with the lid open and you can easily see and hear the "gear changes".
First you need a toothpick or other object to hold the lid switch down so you can leave the lid open.

Insert your Original CD. Turn power on. Disc will spin slow 1x.
Remove the Original CD when the motor changes to 2x and replace it with your Backup CD. [If you did this right, you *SHOULD* see the black PS screen now.]
Watch and listen to the CD motor. It will slow down 1x and then speed back up to 2x. After a few seconds, the CD motor will slow down again. Replace with your Original CD once again.
After another half second or so, the Original CD will speed up again. Finally replace with your Backup CD.

Be quick at swap points, use 1 hand to remove the disc & your other hand to insert the disc. Always put 1 finger on top of the black spindle when removing a disc.

Good Luck. Let me know how works out for you.
