Howto make a bootable DVD
Posted on 2003-11-26
I am running a fairly new computer with a new installation of XP w/ SP 1a. I have a new NEC DVD_RW-1300A drive and several Imation DVD+RW rewritable discs. I want to make a bootable DVD and include 2.4 Gb which is the OS, etc. I can of course burn the entire HD to the DVD, with Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6.0 but it doesn't boot.
Having such a disc will allow me to restore my entire HD to a new one in case I need to, and as I add programs and data to the HD, I should be able to erase the DVD disc and recreate it from time to time.
Can you help me? Google doesn't seem to find anything much, and Roxio's website is not particularly helpful. Thanks.
