    In the instructions page 9/10 they are listing boot-options for all the OS.
    A
    1. create windows 7 repair disk
    2. create win7,vista,win7 startup disk(no access to any ntfs partition nor start windows)
    3. create ms-dos startup disk
    format a:s
    add sys, fdisk, format,attrib, debug
    if you need acces to any dvdcd-drive add the respective drivers
    B
    two-step installations process
    floppy bootdisk or bootable iso
    use installation media to install BootItBM on your harddrive as describe in Step B page 21
    Step A creating Bootmedia or ISO-Image.
    1. extract BooItBM files to folder, run makedisk
    2. select to product in the build:
    a) BootItBM
    b) image for dos(GUI)
    3. the options available depend in the product used above
    a) Image for dos(gui)
    b) script support
    c) CD boot image files
    Image for dos available if BootIt BM is selected above
    blablabla

    its os complicated to seperate the different installations.
    i want eighter a boot-floppy disc or a boot-cd.
    what must be done?

    europanorama,

    BIBM is my favourite application (it's used multiple times daily) but it is complicated and takes perseverance to understand what is happening. To learn the various functions it is better to use it on a test computer so it doesn't matter if you make a mistake. Here is a brief summary to help you make a CD.

    Download the trial BootIt BM. There is a 30 day trial usage. Unzip the file and make a boot CD.

    double click makedisk.exe, next
    dot in BootIt Bare Metal, next
    dot in I accept the agreement, next
    don't select Image for DOS (GUI), next
    dot in Mouse Support Enabled, next
    dot in VESA Video, next
    dot in Video Mode 1024*768 - 64K Colors, next
    dot in Normal, next
    don't choose any Device Options, next
    tick in Enable USB 1.1 (UHCI), next
    tick in Align partitions on 1MiB Boundaries, next
    ignore Additional bootitbm.ini Options, next
    select your CD burner drive letter (you can use a CD-RW or a CD-R disc)
    Finish
