Create a boot image from a floppy boot disk
With the CD-ROM available on almost every computer nowaday, more and more computers don't have a floppy drive... What if you have some bootup
floppy disks and you just want to keep a copy of them, just in case? Well, you rather not to put the disks in the storage and expecting a few years later,
you'd find them and they still work just fine! If you haven't noticed, the quality of floppy disks isn't that good. You don't want to trust your floppy disks.

The solution is simple: make a copy of your floppy disk and save it as a file (an ISO image) on your computer. Then, when you need it, you can either
make a new floppy disk or even a CD out of it.

If you need the information to create a bootable CD/DVD with a bootup floppy disk or a bootup ISO image, see this article.

Requirements: Floppy drive, of course!

The following instructions are based on an image utility called MagicISO. You can choose to use a different "image" software, whichever supports this
option. MagicISO is not a freeware, but a trial version will still what you need.



The St eps:

  1.   If you don't already have MagicISO installed, download it here and install it.
  2.   Launch the MagicISO, if you're using the trial version, click on "Try it "
  3.   Insert a bootup floppy disk that you want to create an image from.
  4.   Select "Tools" from the top menu of MagicISO, then select "Make Boot Image f rom Floppy Disk"

                                                                                                                                                                                                 PDFmyURL.com
5. At the Save As dialog box, browse to the location you wish to save the image file.
6. Enter the name of the image file under " File name" (i.e. "boot img.iso") then press "Ent er"




                                                                                                   PDFmyURL.com
  7. The image creation progress starts to read the floppy disk and write to the image file.
