DOS BOOT CD FOR dell GX280 PC with Network Card Broadcom Netxtreme 57xx

To whom can help.

I urgently need to create a boot cd (not floppy as no floppy disk drives in any of the machines) so i can load up a ghost image to the network.

Could you please provide step by step exact instructions on how to create this and how to then put the image on cd and what tools i will need to do this.

It would be great if you could go into detail therefore i can make other boot cds in the future for other netwrork card drivers.

**500 points as this is an urgent request**

or do you need a special image?

Well i was right.

1. Install nero
2. Create a CD-ROM (Bootable)
3. Check the advanced settings box.
4. The image should be C:\Archivos de programa\Nero\Nero 7\Core\DosBootimage.IMA (default)
5. Add the files you need to start the network.
6. Restart from the cd and you are in dos with acces to the cd room

If you only want to load ghost images to the network, you could use BartPE.
http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

It loads to a 32-bit environment, loading network drivers, etc, without actually loading anything off your system.

It's great for doing images across the network, doing data recovery on the hard drives, etc.

Hope this helps!

What errors are you getting?

I've gotten BartPE to work with Broadcom drivers before, so I should be able to help...
