Mark: Thanks for the response. Yes, I know I can boot to the Ws CD, if all goes well. However, as is noted at the site referenced above - What is a boot disk and why do I need one?
A boot disk is a floppy or a CD that you can use to boot your computer into a state in which you can use it to fix a problem. There will be times that your computer may not boot up properly and thus you can not access files or attempt fixes that you are asked to do. When situations like this occur, having a boot disk is necessary as you will be able to access files and attempt fixes that may allow you to make your computer operational again.
With today's current versions of Windows, you will need a working version of Windows to make a boot disk on your own. With that said, it is a good thing to have a boot disk pre made and ready in case there is a problem with starting Windows in the future. .
I wanted another way of booting. Besides, I am interested in learning about computer procedures. I just continue to be curious in my old age.
I have read the info at the referenced site and will proceed with a test. I will be back tomorrow with a report.
I am 81 years "young" and enjoying becoming computer "savvy." Need help from sites like this from time to time. Thanks to the folks who provide the assistance to those of us in need.
