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


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?

1. Run MagicISO.
2. Insert the bootable floppy disk into floppy driver
3. Click "Tools"->"Make Boot image from floppy disk" ...
