Dos boot dikette in Win2k

By laksi ·
While repairing and setting up on an old computer I need to update it's BIOS. For this task I need a DOS bootup diskette. I figured that I could use my computer for this but to my surprise I found out that running WIN2K, I can't do it. (98/Me and XP all have a format\s function built in, Win2k doesn't).
Can anybody refer me to a solution?

You can use a win98 boot disk. All it's doing is loading you into a dos prompt with a few other functions. Just make sure you read the directions that come with BIOS image.

You can make a WIN2K boot disk if you have the Install. CD. Find thei386 folder and use the makeboot.exe program

Bootdisk is a folder on the CD. It prompts to prepare four diskettes, specially tailored to WIN2K... :-(
