    I have a laptop that does not have a bootable optical drive (dvd or cd). I
    want to install Vista RTM. I created a 3 gb fat32 partition with the vista
    install files and booted a dos boot disk from an SD card. How can I start
    the vista install from the DOS environment on the boot disk? Is there
    another way I can accomplish this install?

    IME 3GB is way too small, try 20 GB. the install footprint seems to be
    about 11 GB. Good luck.
