USB DOS booting

Creating a USB boot disk to make bootable CD/DVD that uses USB by aftertaf
Posted: 10 Mar 06

I have managed to create a dos boot disk to be used with ghost/nero to create a bootable CD/DVD for use with a usb drive.

Format a floppy with boot files.

Create an autoexec.bat
with the following:

CODE

@ECHO OFF
REM Modified 10/03/2006

REM LOAD USB CD DRIVER and map to X:
MSCDEX /D:USBCD001 /L:X
cls

REM RUN AUTOGHOSTING OF PC on USB DVD drive X:
x:\Ghost\ghost.exe -clone,mode=load,src=x:T_007.gho,dst=1 -sure
GOTO QUIT:


:QUIT

echo.
echo Ghost finished, Remove the Ghost DVD and the USB Drive, then reboot the PC!
echo.

and a config.sys with the following

CODE

DOS=HIGH,UMB
lastdrive=Z
device=HIMEM.SYS
devicehigh=USBASPI.SYS /v  /e
devicehigh=DI1000DD.SYS
devicehigh=USBCD.SYS /d:USBCD001

obtain the above SYS files with google, and put them on your floppy.
