I have BootIt Bare Metal version 1.03 successfully installed on my computer and I want to upgrade the program to the latest version of Bare Metal (version 1.07).
I downloaded the package "BootIt Bare Metal (GUI), V1.07" from the file download area for registered users.
I ran MAKEDISK.EXE to create the BootIt bootable flopppy disk.
When I booted to this disk, the BootIt setup program started and I selected the option to upgrade my software.
After specifying that I wanted to manually select the BootIt installation partition, I was placed at the "Work with Partitions" screen.
The file BBM_CONFIG.jpg, which is attached to this forum message, shows the contents of my partitions screen.
Next, I manually selected the "BOOTIT" partition as the install location and clicked SETUP.
After a moment, the error message "Unable to copy file BOOTITBM" was displayed (see attached file BBM_ERROR_MESSAGE.jpg)
I rebooted the computer and used my version 1.03 floppy disk to reinstall the BootIt software.
I got no error messages from the version 1.03 reinstall, and the system was working properly again.
To rule out the possibliity of a bad floppy disk, I created a second floppy disk for the version 1.07 install with MAKEDISK.EXE and repeated all of the steps listed above, and got the same error message when I ran the new floppy disk.
Has anyone seen this error?
