I have a netbook with Windows XP and Windows 7 installed and without a cd-rom drive, so I followed the instructions found in this forum, I used UNetbootin and I create a USB bootable drive with GAG. Then I boot the netbook from usb drive, GAG starts, I configure GAG, then I want install GAG on the MBR of the hard-disk, but when I choose "save on the hard-disk" GAG install itself on the MBR of the usb drive (when I boot from USB drive tihis drive becomes first hard disk while the (actual) hard disk becomes the second hard disk).
So because I don't have cd-rom drive, I cannot use the two following different approaches to install GAG on the mbr of the hard-disk:
1) boot without the USB attached and install it
2) change the bios boot order so that USB doesn't have priority - then the hard disk will be seen as the first drive.
I look for a solution to install GAG on the hard disk of a netbook: netbook don't have an internal cd-rom drive and I don't want pay 40 euro to buy an external cd-rom drive).
I need a way install GAG FROM a bootable USB Flash drive or even to install GAG from within Windows.
Robert Traynor suggest me an other Boot Manager that can do this, such as AiR-BOOT located here at:- http://air-boot.sourceforge.net/.
I'll try it.
Thanks for the help.
I have the same question: how to make bootable USB pendrive with GAG ISO image?
On the desktop computers with CD drive I use GAG CD to install boot manager, is there a solution to use GAG for computers without floppy/CD drives?
Thanks for help…
UBCD (www.ultimatebootcd.com) contains the GAG loader, follow the instructions on the website to make UBCD on USB
