    DOS boot w/ USB support (Win XP Pro SP1)

    Anyone have some suggestions about creating a DOS boot disk with USB hard drive support or modifying a DOS boot disk with Novell VLM support (already in use) but adding USB support so we can continue to use the non 32 bit Ghost currently licensed?

    Any pointers, web sites or questions are welcomed.

    Thanks,

    Jester

    Joe, I hope Jester will come back and let us know how he makes out. I'm embarrassed to admit that, as many times as I've been to that site or sent others there, I'd never gone down far enough on the page to see the section on booting WITH support for USB. I hope it works out for you Jester.

    Edited by WyllyWylly to add URL tag. See the markup help. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    The disks marked "boot disks" for XP are not really what I am trying to put together. The site seems to have only the install disks for XP when users do not have a CD.
    I was looking at http://newdos.yginfo.net/msdos71/ where there is a "DOS" version with USB support but the download I made boots to a two option menu with a third choice of "P" for password. I have emailed the site asking how I get a password and what additional options are available with this password. No answer.

    I don't see where making a donation at Bootdisk.com gets me additional options to download something other than the XP make boot stuff available from MS.

    I am staying at it though since this is the kind of project that results in learning.
