Bootable flash drive using ERD2007.ISO

Hello all. My first question here - been a member for about 3 years.

OK. I am simply trying to create a bootable ERD2007 "thumb drive" that I can use to fix issues on my companies pcs. I have read here about BartPE & the pluggins required for ERD 2003/5 so I assume that I need one specifically for 2007?

My BIGGEST request is: Does anyone have clear, concise instructions for or a link to this proceedure? The stuff I have read assumes that you have a very thorough working knowledge of BartPE which I don't . I also would rather not have to edit .INI files or do any experimenting if at all possible. Also would like to do this with a Dell "green disk" for XP Pro OS installations if at all possible. Obviously this could be done from the actual Dell CD or an ISO. Trying to eliminate ALL CD's from my toolbag :)

Thanks in advance!

I haven't done that myself, and I don't have the required device to try to do it and tell you the result. Check if any of these can help you:

Don't forget that not all PC's can easily boot from a Flash Drive, so I would  not dump those CD's quite yet...


I hope this helps !

Yes I understand the fact that some older system bios' do not support bootable flash. I work primarily with financial institutions that keep up their hardware pretty current. If you read the question closely it explains that I have pieces of directions that either apply to older versions of erd0x but require plug-ins. Looking for specific dirs on erd07 using the tools/procedures mentioned above. Thanks for the comments so far. I know there is someone out there that does this in their sleep!
