I have a small network and none of the clients contain cd-roms / floppy disks.
I would like to create a partition on all the clients which can boot straight into the ultimate boot cd. But without the CD. i.e like a recovery partition.
I can put each of the hard disks into another pc to partition them / prepare them.
how can I create a partition put the ultimate boot cd files on and make it bootable?
I have so far managed to create EISA partitions using diskpart.exe and I have played around with my boot.ini to try and get the partition booting but with no success.
What I want to be able to do is boot with the ultimate boot cd rom on a hidden partition and then I can connect over my network share and run the windows xp setup. So it makes it easy for me to re-install the clients. Also I want the ability to use the tools included with the boot cd in event of virus attacks etc.
Any help would be appreciated
