Install & Setup




Note Intel Customer Service Agents no longer respond to telephone, chat, community support forum, or e-mail inquiries for self-service products.

The bootable version of the utility is used as a boot disk for Intel® Processor-based systems that are not running Windows 98*/ Me*/XP*/NT*/20008 operating systems.

See how to make a disk with the utility so that you can test your system. Use the disk to boot your system.

  • The utility does not support creating the bootable version using an LS120 drive. To run on an LS120 drive, create the bootable floppy disk using a regular disk on a standard floppy drive.
  • This download does not work in DOS-emulation windows, as found in some operating systems including Linux*.

Install the bootable version:

Before you begin, have a pre-formatted floppy disk ready. To download files, you must have access to a DOS-based system or use Windows 95*/98*/Me*/XP*/NT*/2000*.

  1. Download the bootable version.
  2. Click Save this program to disk and click OK. The system saves the program in your C:\temp directory by default.
    If you want to change the location for the download, select a different directory, then click Save.
  3. Type the file name to open up a DOS prompt window and start the download from the temp directory, or other directory.
  4. Once the files are extracted, start the setup.bat program file.
  5. Insert your pre-formatted floppy disk into the floppy drive and press any key.
    • The tool extracts the bootable version of the utility to your floppy disk.
    • When finished, the tool returns you to the DOS prompt.
    • If you started the file by double-clicking instead of following step 4, the command prompt window closes when the disk is finished.
  6. To use the bootable version, eject the floppy. Insert it into the computer system you are testing.
  7. Turn off the system and reboot with the bootable floppy in the drive. The utility runs automatically.
