MS Windows 95 & 95a

MS Windows 95b (OSR2)

MS Windows 98 & 98SE

MS Windows ME (Millennium)

MS Windows NT v4 (workstation & server) 4disks

MS Windows NT v4 (Terminal server) 4disks

MS Windows 2000 Professional 4disks

MS Windows 2000 Server 4disks

MS Windows XP Home Edition 6disks

MS Windows XP Pro (including Corp) 6disks

MS Windows XP Home SP1 6disks

MS Windows XP Pro SP1 (includes Corp) 6disks
Allows you to boot from a single floppy disk, partition and format the drive and then begin the XP installation from CD.

A lot of people appear to be unaware of the fact that you do NOT need the 4, 5 or 6 setup disks in order to install Windows 2000 and XP. A common Win98 boot disk such as the Boot Disk Essentials diskette below can be used to install these OS's. This is what the Win XP System Setup Disk above does. Here's how to do it:

1. Start the computer with your chosen boot disk.
2. Change to the cdrom drive.
3. Go into the \i386 directory on the cdrom.
4. Run WINNT.EXE to begin the install process.

How to Make Special Boot Disks

Boot Disk Essentials (913kb)
Disk contents: attrib.exe, deltree.exe, doskey.exe, edit.com, emm386.exe, extract.exe, fdisk.exe, format.com, himem.sys, mem.exe, more.com, mouse.com, move.exe, mscdex.exe, reboot.com, scandisk.exe, scanreg.exe, smartdrv.exe, sys.com and xcopy.exe as well as a generic IDE CDROM driver.

Partition Recovery Boot Disk (1.2Mb)
Based on the Boot Disk Essentials disk above. Contents: Generic IDE CDROM driver, mouse driver, basic file manipulation tools, fdisk, format and testdisk.exe - a partition undelete tool which handles Windows and Linux partitions allowing them to be restored when lost or accidentally deleted.

PCI Discovery Boot Disk (943Kb)
Based on a Win98Se boot disk, this diskette contains a generic IDE cdrom driver, mouse driver, a limited set of file manipulation tools, fdisk, format and sys. It also contains a fast XMS ramdrive program and two DOS-based PCI discovery tools written by Craig Hart and Marcus Hoetsveld respectively. This tool is useful for identifying PCI and AGP video cards, sound card, motherboard chipsets and other devices on the PCI Bus.

Bios Update Boot Disk (258Kb)
Offered by request, this disk is a minimalist boot disk containing nothing but io.sys, msdos.sys and command.com. It is intended to be used for making your own bios update disks. Just copy your bios flashrom update program and bios image files to the floppy disk after creation.

Program untuk membuat USB Drive jadi bisa bootable


FlashBoot is a tool to make USB flash disks bootable. It is highly configurable, has many options and was designed to be compatible with all USB disks and BIOSes.

Product Features

FlashBoot is a tool to create bootable USB disks, USB Flash Memory keys and cards mainly. What are the benefits of such devices for you? Let's see: unlike the most bootable medias, bootable USB Flash keys are very handy: compared to floppies, they have much bigger size, speed and reliability, compared to CD-ROMs, they are random write access devices, so you can backup your data to the same media where you booted from, without need to reformat (reburn) the entire media. Again, the cost per megabyte for them continues to cut down, which is not the case for CD-ROMs and floppies.

And the most important thing is that you can use bootable USB Flash Disk almost everywhere, on any PC that has USB port. Are you going to repair your PC at your work without CD-ROMs, floppies or other media? No problems anymore. Or you have a laptop but without a CD-ROM drive? Even if with a CD-ROM drive, you can't work with it for a long time: boot device is accessed quite often, and battery power is obviously not enough to supply laser for a long time. Perhaps you are home user with a desktop PC. And you are ready to repair it with your favorite bootable CD-ROM, OK. But what if CD-ROM drive fails? Will you be able to boot or to get your backup data back?

With bootable USB Flash Memory key, you may boot every PC with USB ports, regardless of non-present or broken devices, because there's no need for any extra devices. You don't have a media size limit of 700 or 800 MB anymore, and buy a big or a small disk depending on your needs. Just after boot, on every PC, you may save your files to the same device from which you booted, or restore them back. There's no need to reformat (reburn) the boot disk, you just copy files and folders, and there's no need for extra hardware for such operations. Of course you may do some things you can't do under your OS: copy/modify system files (they are busy when OS is running), reinstall OS, repartition your main hard disk etc.

FlashBoot is a tool that makes USB disks bootable. It was specially designed to work with USB Flash devices. It is used to reformat flash disk (that's optional) and transfer system files to it. You have many options for your choice:

* convert BartPE bootable CD-ROM to bootable USB disk
* transfer DOS kernel only (you may get the files from installed Windows 9x, from Windows 9x setup folder, or use built-in FreeDOS)
* convert floppy disk to USB Flash disk (a diskette or an image file may be used)
* convert a bootable CD-ROM to USB Flash disk (again images are supported). There are some technical difficulties with supporting any type of CD-ROM here, see details below. But there should be no troubles with the most real cases. You may convert Knoppix and EBCD, for instance.
* create Windows NT/2000/XP password recovery disk
* create disk with NT/2000/XP bootloader. It would be useful when you have mistakenly configured it, and boot.ini file was left on unreachable disk (NTFS).
* duplicate USB flash disk. Just creates a copy of existing disk USB flash disk, different sizes of source and destination medias are OK.

Types of convertible CD-ROMs include so-called 1.44-floppy emulation bootable CD-ROMs and no-emulation CD-ROMs based on ISOLinux.

FlashBoot is designed to be compatible with all types of bootable USB Flash disks, i.e. it is not binded to Transend, Kingston, HP, or to any other particular manufacturer of USB Flash disks.

FlashBoot is designed to be compatible with most of the BIOSes. Some of them require USB disk to be partitioned (USB-HDD mode), some of them require superfloppy format (USB-ZIP mode). You may choose disk format type between partitioned disk and superfloppy, when formatting your USB Flash disk with FlashBoot (if you choose to reformat). You may write the output to image file, transfer it to another PC and write it to physical device there (either with FlashBoot or with any other suitable tool, for example, with Linux dd command).

Sebagai contoh, berikut ini langkah2 untuk membuat bootable BartPE/miniPE.
Sehingga kita bisa menjadikan USB sebagai emergency disk.

1. Program scanning antivirus dimatiin dulu.
2. USB-HDD (~10GB) saya format jadi satu partisi.

FlashBoot Wizard:

1. Jalankan FlashBoot & dan pilih opsi pertama "Convert BartPE bootable disk to bootable flash disk".
2. Pilih lokasi sumbernya dari file ISO apa CD-ROM. 3. Pilih abjad drive USB-HDD.
3. Pilih abjad drive USB-HDD. 4. Terakhir, pilih format type "Partition disk (USB-HDD boot mode)"
4. Terakhir, pilih format type "Partition disk (USB-HDD boot mode)"
5. dan tunggu hingga prosesnya selesai.


1. Restart PC dan masuk ke BIOS Setup, lalu pilih Boot Sequence pertama ke USB-HDD.
2. Dan PCku bisa running miniPE dari USB-HDD dengan sukses, lebih cepat daripada CD 8)
3. Setelah puas, PC direstart lagi ke WinXP.
4. Lalu saya cek properties drive USB-HDD dari Windows Explorer,
ternyata yang tadinya 10GB jadi terdetek 1.38GB! dan file system berubah jadi FAT16.
5. Lalu saya booting PC pake miniPE CD untuk dicek.
6. Saya jalanin Partition Magic 8, USB-HDD terdeteksi bad partition.
7. Penasaran, saya tutup & jalanin lagi Partition Magic, sekarang ada muncul perngatan bahwa ada error head partisi.
Ditanya mau diperbaiki apa gak? Setelh dipilih Yes, skr jadi terdeteksi ada unallocated space.
8. Langsung aja yang unallocated space itu dipartisi/format jadi logical FAT32.

9. sampe skr udah gak ada masalah & USB-HDD punyaku tetep bisa bootable miniPE.
