View Full Version : Help with making a boot CD with the press any key message

11-03-2005, 10:39 PM
Does anybody know how to make a bootable CD that has the same "press any key" feature as the windows installers since 98? I have been told they are like a master boot record and to just put one onto a CD, but I have not found any way to do this.

I have been making standard bootable CD's for some years now, but I have not seen any instructions on how to make one with this feature anywhere, because the internet is littered with instructions on what to do after the message appears, and on a slow internet connection... you get the picture.

If there is somebody out there that has this knowlege and is willing to share it, would you please let me know?

I use Nero 6 (full), and I have Adaptec's offering, as well as a variety of other packages.

Try searching google.
What you require is the bootstrap loader.

"cd image with press any key feature" will be a good start.

You need somthing like jo.sys (http://www.nu2.nu/jo/)

Read all about bootable cds here (http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/)

use Nero to make a bootable cd with autoexec.bat file on it with one command in it.....
that will cause the press any key to continue message on bootup
