How do I create a bootable Remote Installation Service client disk?

A. A special utility is used to create a boot disk to allow clients without PXE (Pre-boot eXecution Environment) to boot and install using the Remote Installation Service (providing they have a support NIC).

To create the boot disk perform the following:

  1. Click Start and select Run
  2. Type
    \\<RIS server name or IP address>\RemoteInstall\Admin\I386\RBFG.EXE
  3. Select the disk drive (A or B)
  4. Insert a floppy disk
  5. Click 'Create Disk'
    Click here to view image
  6. Click 'No' to create another disk

You can now use this disk to boot a machine. To check which adapters it supports click the 'Adapter List' button in the RBFG utility.
