Creating a bootable floppy in vista???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to flash my bios but when I create a bootable floppy I don't have enough space left on it to put the bios software on.



Can I delete any of these files to make room for the rest of the files?

Can you do it with USB pen?

Yeah. If your computer can boot to usb, you can do it with that. Just put all the files on the USB drive and boot to it.

Try it anyways? If you can't fit everything on a floppy, you really have no choice.

If you edit the autoexec.bat and config.sys files to only request the drivers you actually NEED (for example, you don't need all 4 keybrd*.sys files), you can get rid of enough data to fit everything.

I use drdflash to make a bootable floppy. You can find it at http://www.bootdisk.com/ under "Driver free disk for BIOS Flashing"
