About the supported boot media on Windows for BMR 7.0.1 and later versions

The BMR restore process begins by network booting the client from a BMR boot server or from BMR prepared boot media (CD or DVD).

You can restore a client using Fast Restore SRTs or Legacy OS-based SRTs. Versions older than BMR 7.0.1 also supported floppy as a boot media if you selected the Legacy OS-based Restore option, on Windows platform.

Note:

The Legacy OS-based Restore of Windows Server 2008 SP2 systems can be done with a Legacy OS-based SRT that is at Windows Server 2008 SP1 level. The Prepare To Restore command allows this special scenario.

Note:

In BMR 7.0.1 and later versions, floppy-based restore is not supported on Windows platform.

In BMR 7.0.1 and later versions, you can boot BMR clients only with the following options on Windows platform:

  • Network boot

  • CD/DVD Media boot

Note:

In BMR 7.0.1 and later versions, because of the elimination of PC-DOS, you do not need to create Boot Floppy. Therefore the Legacy Boot Floppy Wizard link on the Boot Server Assistant screen is removed.
