Making a Quick Boot Diskette dialog box
Besides the use of a hard disk-based boot method, we suggest
the use of the good old floppy disk drive (FDD) as an
alternative method to boot your computer.
Although many people dismiss the diskette as obsolete
(or more commonly, their computer has no FDD), we still think
the diskette-based boot method is viable for its flexibility.
As a matter of fact, we suggest that you acquire a USB-FDD
if you do not have one. As of current writing,
practically all laptop computers still provide a boot option
using USB-FDD. It is a worthwhile investment.
We think the FDD-based boot method is a reliable first step
in dealing with a system that cannot be booted from the hard
This procedure helps you create a boot diskette that we call
the Quick Boot Diskette (QBD) that will be good not only for
booting into the newly created cloned volume, but also for
booting into any volume including the main system disk that
has trouble booting into the Windows environment.
Insert a formatted diskette in the FDD (A:) and click the
Start button. Existing files on the floppy disk
will be preserved.
You may add additional entries in the boot menu on the
QBD by manually editing the BOOT.INI file on the diskette.
