Intel® Processor Frequency ID Utility Installation Guide - bootable Version

Last Reviewed: 22-Mar-2016
Article ID: 000007043

This version of the utility is used as a boot disk for systems based on Intel® Processor that are not running Windows* 98/Me/XP/NT/2000-based operating systems.

The instructions explain how to make a diskette that has the utility, so that you can test your system. The diskette is also used to boot your system. 

  • The utility does not support creating the bootable version using an LS120 drive. To run on an LS120 drive, create the bootable floppy disk using a regular disk on a standard floppy drive.
  • This download does not work in DOS-emulation windows, as found in some operating systems such as Linux.


Before you begin, have a pre-formatted floppy diskette ready. To download files, you must have access to a DOS-based system, or use Windows 95/98/Me/XP/NT/2000.

  1. Download the bootable version.
  2. Click Save this program to disk and click OK. The system saves the program in your C:\temp directory as the default. If you would like to change the location for the download, select a different directory, then click Save.
  3. Open up a DOS prompt window and start the download from the temp directory, or another directory, by typing the file name.
  4. Once the files are extracted, start the setup.bat program file.
  5. Insert your pre-formatted floppy diskette into the floppy drive and press any key.
    • The tool extracts the bootable version of the utility to your floppy diskette.
    • When finished, the tool returns you to the DOS prompt.
    • If you started the file by double-clicking it instead of following the instructions in step 4, the command prompt window closes when the diskette is finished.
  6. To use the bootable version, eject the floppy and insert it into the computer system you are testing.
  7. Turn off the system and reboot with the bootable floppy in the drive. The utility runs automatically.
