Title:  How to create boot kit for BMR and add the additional hardware driver?

Description:

This document describes the step by step process with screenshots to include the third-party NIC/SCSI/FC drivers to the boot kit (USB) which can be used with Windows 7/Windows Vista/Windows 2008/Windows 2008R2 installation media (CD/DVD) to perform the BMR.

Note:

  • If you do not have a USB stick available or you do not want to create the boot image on a USB stick at this time, you can save the boot kit data temporarily to another location and then copy it to a USB stick later.
  • The created USB stick cannot be used to boot machine. It must work with the Windows 7/Windows Vista/Windows 2008/Windows 2008R2 installation media (CD/DVD) to perform the actual BMR.
