    maybe you can extract contents and place files in usb flash drive if system has usb port available AND can boot from usb?

    can you not grab an extra floppy and install on system?

    Accepted Solution

    use a CD burning program to write the floppy contents to CD, including the floppy boot info, that way your CD acts as if it was a floppy disk, and it will work with the right floppy boot sector copied to the CD by IsoBuster.
