    Hi! I just bought a maxtor oem hard drive, no documentation or software.
    Now I have download maxtors maxblast 3 software and created a bootable
    floppy with it. Can I burn these files to a cdr as is to make a bootable
    cd. I ask because according to the website I will be booting from the
    floppy and then I have to follow instructions to install my os before
    exiting maxblast. but I assume this means that I will have to reboot from
    the cdrom, but that will not be the primary boot device until I set it
    later.
    Thanks

    Tried booting from the OS CD? If you can do that, you can probably
    format/partition the new HD directly.
