CD Boot/2 is a utility to enhance bootable OS/2 CD-ROMs so that when  the CD-ROM is inserted into the drive, a menu is displayed immediately  after BIOS has started booting from it. From that menu, the user has  to press the spacebar to continue booting from the removeable media,  or if the customizeable period expires, the boot process continues  booting from the first harddisk instead.

This is helpful if you want to create a single bootable OS/2  installation CD-ROM (in contrast to the 2 CD-ROM based solution IBM  ships with Aurora, Aurora and Merlin Convenience Pack) and still don't want to manually take care of removing the CD-ROM during the  subsequent reboots during OS/2 installation.

You can also use it to enhance FAT-based non-OS/2 bootable diskettes  (like e.g. DOS, WIN9x, WIN NT, W2K) with some limitations.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder. See below for download link(s).
