Drivers and Scripts

You definitely can automate some functions using Active@ Boot Disk.

While Active@ Boot Disk is starting, you may install drivers and run scripts in order to reduce the amount of time required to perform maintenance functions on your data storage system.

If you suppose that your hard drive has damaged drivers or if you have older or uncommon RAID or SCSI type drivers, you have a possibility to create a folder named BootDisk_Drivers in the root of any logical drive and load drivers along with their configuration files into it. Active@ Boot Disk will detect these drivers and install them automatically during the boot process.

While created Active@ Boot Disk is loading the start-up utility searches for the BootDisk_Drivers folder in the root of all devices. That includes the floppy drive, an USB device, a working hard drive etc.

If Active@ Boot Disk finds .inf files inside a folder named BootDisk_Drivers, it tries to load them along with all other files required by the drivers provided.

Whether or not the utility loads drivers, Active@ Boot Disk will proceed in search of a folder named BootDisk_Scripts – again in the root of any logical drive.

Note: Active@ Boot Disk runs any *.cmd files assuming that they are scripts.

Active@ Boot Disk Creator helps you in configuring these folders (drivers and scripts).
