    When I want to make a bootable CD using Nero, it has just one option to pull up the boot file : Boot Image from a bootable floppy disk
    I dont have a bootable floppy disk.
    Is there any other way I can make the CD bootable ? Copy the system files in Windows etc ?
    Thanks

    You'll need some kind of bootable floppy in order for Nero to make a bootable CD out of it. If you just need the boot floppy image, you can get 'em here.

    As far as I know, you'll still need the floppy. But I don't use Nero often, so I could be mistaken. Does your system even have a floppy drive?

    It seems it writes the boot content to floppy - Floppy drive is available but unused and doesnt work often - is it not possible to have Nero to point to some boot image or file in the HDD ?
    And what is Custom, No Ramdrive ?
