    Hi,

    Can we use USB Imaging Tool through bootable CD. Mean, same as we use to USB Stick because 941G have not booting option through USB port. I want to use it for 941G Thin Client, any suggestion or tip will be helpful for me.

    Cheers,
    Enam

    Hmmm, that’s a cool concept.

    I see no reason why not, you may have to load the files to a ram disk as the read only CD media might cause an issue with the log files when they are created.

    Programs like Nero have a easy Wisard to create the media and you could use the same USB stick as the source.

    I don’t have a CD ROM in my 941G to try, can you give it a go and post back where you get stuck?

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    I burned the USB Imaging Package in the CD Rom using Nero Burning Software and also maked the CD, Bootable CD. Using Bootable CD when we ran the Autoexec.bat file manually, all process ran same as run through USB Imaging Tool. (I wrote the 941G.bat script in the Autoexec.bat file thats why there was no need to input for device selection). During process it stuck on this message “Operating in dos envoirnment.” and it does not continue for imaging untill I restart the device.
    Where I did mistake to create CD Imaging Tool, How can I create Ram Disk. might be its Ram Disk issue.

    Cheers,
    Enam

    Hi,

    I never did get around to this! You will have to modify the bat files to a new drive letter (A:) and also use MSCDEX.EXE in the autoexec.bat to load the CD-ROM drivers where the image is stored. I recall one other post where someone did this. Are you still trying to load images to a 941G? Would it be better to boot from a floppy and load the image over the network?

    Cheers,

    Hi Enum,

    I do not have a 941G but I tried making a floppy disk from the USB imager (you need to change all the references to A: from c: and it booted fine.

    Also you will need to load thew CD ROM drivers and copy the tools directory and the images to the D: drive (or what ever drive you make the CD ROM) and run the 941G.bat file from there.

    Can you get the 941G to boot from the CD fully? I just used Nero to create my image.

    Cheers,
    -TT
