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.
- Download the bootable version.
- 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.
- Open up a DOS prompt window and start the download from the temp directory, or another directory, by typing the file name.
- Once the files are extracted, start the setup.bat program file.
- 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.
- To use the bootable version, eject the floppy and insert it into the computer system you are testing.
- Turn off the system and reboot with the bootable floppy in the drive. The utility runs automatically.
