I'm going to write "not going to happen". Here's why. I've yet to see a BIOS offer to boot the parallel port ZIP drive. However, some IBMs did offer a Zip drive in the laptop and ... it was bootable.

If you are trying to solve some CD/hard-disk boot problem, let me note I will not respond in this thread since that was not in your initial post.

Only if the BIOS supports it.

About bootable CDs. Ask a friend to create and test one for you.
