    Hello everyone,

    I am hoping some of you can help me with creating a network boot disk for
    Virtual PC. So far, I haven't found a utility which has been able to help
    me. Although I thought I was in luck with Bart's, my problem is compounded
    by having a faulty floppy drive. So, what I need is the ability to create a
    virtual floppy from the boot-disc source files.

    I am running virtual PC with build version 6.0.156.0.
    The NIC on the machines is reporting as an Intel 21140-Based PCI Fast
    Ethernet Adapter Generic.

    I have struggled for a couple of days to find a solution for this, and it
    would be appreciated if someone could point me in the right direction. I am
    basically trying to run through some unattended installations using
    networked virtuals. All I need to do is create a floppy image, and boot from
    it, when allows me to see the network share where the source files live.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Leigh

  2. Maybe you could use boot cd instead of boot floppy?
