I did a search of the forum, but didn’t find anything on this. I’m trying to make a bootable CD that will automatically start a program when the boot is complete. I want as little user intervention/interaction on this as possible for the people who will be getting this CD. I’m using Nero 126.96.36.199. I select “CD-ROM (Boot)” as the disc I want to burn. On the Boot tab I select Image file and it’s pointing to C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero 7\Core\DosBootimage.IMA.
I’m burning an autoexec.bat file on the CD that starts a program and then runs a second program when the first is complete. The two programs that run are also being burned on the CD. The CD boots, but when it’s done booting it’s at an A: prompt. I have to type in D: to change to the CD, and then type in autoexec.bat. Everything works fine after that.
I thought it would see the autoexec.bat on the CD and start it up as soon as it finished booting, but that’s not the case. How can I get it to do this?
