BootFlashDOS is a small utilty for making your USB Flash Stick bootable to a DOS environment. You dont need to create a bootable floppy disk to begin with, unlike most utilities or this sort.
- No installation needed. Just run BootFlashDOS to use it.
- Partitions / Formats and Makes you USB Flash Stick Bootable.
- Obtains the required DOS startup files from you system automatically. No need to supply a bootable floppy.
BootFlashDOS gets the required DOS files from a dll file on your Windows XP/2003 system. This dll is called diskcopy.dll and is in your system32 folder. As of Windows XP this file contains a bootable floppy image as a binary resource. BootFlashDOS extracts the files from this image and copies them to the chosen Flash Disk.
Before these files are copied BootFlashDOS partitions/formats and enables booting or your USB Stick. The method used is exactly the same as my other project PeToUSB. So its tried and tested.
