Subject description: (The solution: use peasydisc rather than ISOMaster.)
 

Hello again all.

How do I incorporate a dvd boot sector to an iso file created with
ISOMaster?

I looked pretty much eveywhere on the web, and all the search engines
seem to refer me to WhineDose solutions, even when I explicitly mention
"Linux" in the search line. What's the world coming to, eh? Shocked

I found a few answers specific to Linux, but either they're not close
enough to my question -- or they're in gobbledigook.

Thanks in advance.

Do you mean, what to do to the iso so it will boot when correctly burned to a DVD? I don't think there is such a thing as a boot sector on a DVD.

Yes, that's it.

If a dvd doesn't have a boot sector, how does it boot then?

BFN.

I guess that's not possible with ISOMaster

This is how you create a puppy Live CD:

Code:

mkisofs -J -D -R -o "puppy.iso" -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table "/input/directory"


Where isolinux.bin is the bootloader. I guess you can use the same line to create a Live DVD.

I personally use grldr (grub4dos bootloader), which also requires a boot menu.

You can specify any valid bootloader (it must be present), and then you have a bootable DVD...

Then you can edit this ISO image with ISOMaster, I mean... ISOMaster doesn't have advanced features as far as I know...

not in the last decade... drop the -J and look for my stuff in the DVD and multisession threads elsewhere. the Boot stuff in the iso is at front ( like boot for harddrives from pre UEFI ) Using the BluRay settings in that thread on booting bluray you can post burn an iso AFTER a prior burn and have it boot ( not sure if standard but oddly it works for my setup ) BluRay boot is backword bootable with DVD so only one script is needed for boot.
Away from home and computers ( prepping for a lunch birthday date woohoo!!! ) so unable to post actual script I use.

@musher0: You recently reviewed PeasyDisc. Its Advanced section has a tool for making bootable ISOs that are compatible with burning to DVD.

@rcrsn51: Thanks.

@jist: Thanks also. However the isolinux.bin and boot.cat are in my
ISOMaster list. Those two files in that list ensure that the iso file will be
bootable, right?

@TEdDog. A very meek, smallish thank you. I'll thank you officially after
you've posted the links to the other threads that you mention in your post
above. Also please elaborate a bit? I barely understood what you said. So
no real thanks just yet. Wink

BFN.

ISOmaster is for editing the ISO image. 'burning' a disk is a different process, and burning a bootable disk is just one of the options when burning.

I'm not there yet. I'm still trying to understand ISOMaster. Will try your
solution later. Please see below my reaction to amigo's post. Thanks.

Hello, amigo.

I know that much about ISOMaster.

> burning a bootable disk is just one of the options when burning.
Ah. Like the command line jlst provided above?

What I mean is:
if files isolinux.bin and boot.cat are already in the iso file ISOMaster
created, do I need to specify them in the command line jlst provided?

Thanks in advance.

@rcrsn51:
Hello.

I can confirm that a cd-rw was blanked and a good copy burned using your
peasydisc. However this Puppy cd was not bootable, even if the isolinux.bin
and boot.cat were in the iso.

BFN.

Please list the files on the disc and the contents of your isolinux.cfg file.

Did you select Boot Method = isolinux?

Did you get a clean copy of isolinux.bin from /usr/lib/syslinux?

Hello, rcrsn51.

No listing possible since I had already re-blanked the disc.

However, I redid the job through your peasydisc, with the files in a folder
rather than in a pre-made iso, with isolinux ticked, and it worked.

BFN.

Excellent. You do not need to provide the boot.cat file - it is created for you. I am posting v3.6 which has a Help button in the Make an ISO section that lists the required files.
