You are here: MagicISO FAQ > How do I make a bootable CD instead of bootable floppy?


Question:

I have a bootable floppy that was created by a program to update a computers bios. This computer does not have a floppy drive. So I need to basically make the bootable floppy I have into a bootable cd. If I can make an iso file that is an exact image of the floppy (boot areas as well) then I should be able to burn that to cd using any burning software. Can your program create this iso file for me?

thanks.

1. Run MagicISO.
