Since the appearance of the so-called 'd2nothing' drives in the market over the last month-or-so, a number of concerned installers have emailed us to ask about a modding solution for when this drive becomes commonplace. At this point, we would simply like to confirm that we already have DVD Backups booting on d2nothing drives using a new solution that we have been developing for some time. We will make new announcements about this exciting solution soon!
