DaRT Partition and ERD Commander


New Member
I know I read somewhere that you could install MS DaRT (Diagnostics and Recovery Tools) from the MDOP Optimization Pack into a standalone bootable partition. In case your machine has serious problems you would be able to boot to that partition and resolve issues without the OS running in memory. Now that I'm looking for the steps to do this I can only find steps to create a bootable CD. This would be a hassle in a big organization. Does anyone have the steps to create this partition? Thanks...
