Please, is it possible to create a BOOTEABLE CD of Windows 98?
I'm asking this question because I need to create a booteable CD to boot any PC with any Windows OS from this CD.
Do you remember that in the past it was possible to create a floppy diskette with drivers just to boot the PC and then get to a DOS prompt? I would like to have the same functionality but with a CD... Some people say to me to go to some web pages where I can download some files to burn in a CD... but they does not work.
I have a Windows 98 SE CD, which is booteable. But it has all the files of Windows 98 to install. It is around 520 MB. I just want to have the necessary files in a CD to boot the PC, get to a DOS prompt. In that CD I would like to put Ghost.exe or an antivirus program, etc. So I can execute these programs from a DOS prompt after booting the PC.
I tried to make a bootable CD from my original Windows 98 SE CD using NEro Express 6.0, but I had to copy all files from Windows 98 SE, again 520 MB, and it doesn't work! I put my copied CD of Windows 98 but any PC cannot boot from this.
IS it possible to create a bootable CD just as we used to create booteable floppy disks ???
