This how to create a NT bootdisk and if NT does not have the network drivers this tells you how to add the drivers. If you do not have a dos system disk try www.bootdisk.com they might even have NT boot disks.



Intel? Network Adapters
Creating a Boot and Logon Disk for Windows NT* 4.0
Use this procedure when you have an Intel? PRO/100+ LAN adapter that is not listed on the list of adapters shown by Windows NT* 4.0 when creating a Network Installation Startup Disk.

To perform this task you will need:


The latest driver disk for the network adapter you are using.
A Windows NT 4.0 server with client directories or the Windows NT 4.0 installation CD.
Procedure:


Create a DOS boot disk on a machine running MS-DOS 6.2x or newer.

Place the disk in the disk drive on the Windows NT 4.0 server.

Select Start, Programs, Administrative Tools (Common), Network Client Administrator.

Be sure the Make Network Installation Startup Disk option is selected and click Continue.

Hi, go to explorer, drive C.On the view menu, click options, click show all files, clear the hidden file extensions for known file types check box and click ok. You'll see your boot files. Uncheck hidden and read-only on the properties tab of the following:
boot.ini
ntldr
ntdetect.com
bootsect.dos (this will exist if you have dos installed)
ntbootdd.sys (will exist if you have a BIOS-disabled scsi adapter)
Format a floppy disk using windows NT explorer or a command prompt and use the format.exe command. Copy the files. Then test your disk. You must format the disk on an nt machine so the boot sector can find and run ntldr. That's it. If you have any trouble, contact me at: lvachon@consultant.com Good luck.

Do you mean a boot disk for NT or do you mean a dos boot disk which will load network drivers and enable you to boot a workstation connect to the server?

The first option (Boot disk for NT) used in scenarios when you need to boot a server from a mirrored disk - is as simple as formating a blank disk on the NT Server (not workstation) and then copying Boot.ini, ntldr, ntdetect.com (assuming IDE).

If it is the second, reply to me as I have a TCP/IP network bootdisk - but its not a walk in the park to explain in 1000 chars or less.
