Computer Challenge – How to Create a Bootable Disk?

From Oren S./M/Newington,CT)
Whats the best way to create a bootable disk?

It depends on version of OS that you want to create the bootable disk.  UBCD from (a CBS (the TV conglomerate) site of shareware programs that are pre-checked for virus’ and malware) is a good tool. UBCD (short for Ultimate Boot CD/Compact Disc) is a program that allows you to create and load a few programs to create a bootable CD.

  • Start Menu|Run|CMD|Format a:/sys if you still have a 3.5 diskette.

There are other tools built into MS Vista and I believe MS Win7, but I am not as familiar with them. You can also use UBCD to create a bootable thumbdrive or flash drive if you can have your PC boot from USB port. Otherwise the install disks that may have come with your PC as operating system may work to be able to boot directly from a CD.

  1. I have used the boot-able option while writing a disk in some earlier version of Nero which was easier to use. Now in the updated versions are not familiar to write and also to find the boot-able option. I have used other applications in the windows 7 for writing disk and they are also not familiar to make boot-able disk. Thanks for this updated version of tool, I will check it.

    • It can be frustrating how the ‘old’ reliable tools keep getting removed for improvements. It is one thing to have a different layout when I move cities, but when the streets in my ‘hood keep changing and I am in the same house it gets frustrating.
