Title: How to create boot kit for BMR and add the additional hardware driver?
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.
Steps to include third-party NIC/SCSI/FC drivers to boot kit from specified location option
- Click Start -> All Programs -> CA -> ARCserve D2D -> Create Boot kit or from the CA ARCserve D2D Monitor, click the Advanced option and then select Create Boot Kit.
- Click 'OK' to acknowledge the Welcome message.
The CA ARCserve D2D Boot Kit dialog opens.
- Click on 'Browse' to browse and specify the location for the installed USB stick. After selecting the folder, click on 'OK'.
- Now select the drivers which needs to be integrated. Select 'Add third party NIC/SCSI/FC drivers from specified location'. Click on 'Add Driver'.
- Browse and locate the setup information file(.inf file). Select the .inf file and click on 'Open'.
- Now the driver would be integrated to the boot kit. In the following screenshot, SCSI and NIC drivers are integrated to the boot kit.
- Click on 'Start' to create the boot kit. Once the process is complete the following message will be displayed 'USB Stick for BMR successfully created', click on 'OK' to exit.
- The selected drivers are then loaded during the recovery process (BMR).
- 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.
