Example for "Several Computers"
In larger companies and institutions, it is often necessary to reinstall a series of new computers.
In this case, each computer has to be set up individually "by hand" (a lot of work!), because there is no software, which automatically creates partitions.
Solution using the bootmanager BootStar:
The program of the bootmanager BootStar can be automated using a so-called "batch programming" routine, which can also be used to create partitions at the same time.
The computer can be booted from a boot diskette, which triggers this batch program automatically. It installs all desired partitions and the bootmanager BootStar as well -- if that is desired. It also offers support for installing operating systems.
This process can be used for any of the application examples.
The realization of the application Example of "Several Operating Systems" listed above is as follows:
BSDOS.EXE /Status ; Is BootStar installed?
If Errorlevel 1 Goto LABELClear ; No: Jump
BSDOS.EXE /CLEARMBR ; Delete all existing partitions
BSDOS.EXE /Install ; Install BootStar
BSDOS.EXE /Partition:OS2-100 ; Create partition with 100 megabytes
BSDOS.EXE /Partition:Linux- ; Partition with remaining hard drive
BSDOS.EXE /Partition:Win-,HDD2 ; Partition on 2nd Hard drive
BSDOS.EXE /Bootprofile:2 ; Activate Linux
