General :: Use Mkisofs To Rebuild Iso Image?

Mar 11, 2010

Iam trying to alter a bootable Debian install CD based on the instructions [URL] this is the command to rebuild the iso image as specified at the above link.

Code:

$ mkisofs -o debian-503-amd64-CD-1-preseed.iso
-r -J -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin
-c isolinux/boot.cat ./debian-503 2> /dev/null

I've read the man pages for all the options specified and made sure that all paths are relative. However, the output iso file is not being generated.

General :: Mkisofs Command - Booting From ISO Image

Jan 28, 2010

I have created an iso image from a RHEL5.4 disc using mkisofs.
mkisofs -A "Red Hat Linux 5.4" -V "Red Hat Linux 5.4" -v -U -J -R -T
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot
-boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o /tmp/RHEL54-x86_64-dvd.iso .

It creates the iso image no problem, however when I go to boot a new server from the disc I get the boot prompt, hit enter, answer the language and keyboard questions and then it throws the following error:
"The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server CD was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server CD and press OK to retry".
Perhaps I need to specify in my mkisofs command that its supposed to be iso9660? This is on a RHEV virtual machine.

Ubuntu :: Mkisofs - Cannot Make Working ISO File

Mar 4, 2011

I have an iso file that I want to mount. It turned out to contain only data so I need to make it into a working iso file using mkisofs. For some reason it was done in a couple of seconds while the file is more then 7Gb. The output is....nothing. I looked inside /media/isodrive and there is nothing there. The original img is suddenly only 363Mb :s.

This is the commandline I used:
sven@sven-XPS-L501X:~/Desktop$ sudo mkisofs -o shaun.white.iso /media/isodrive/
[sudo] password for sven:

OpenSUSE Install :: Make A Bootable DVD Version USB?

Oct 10, 2010

I understand that one can easily make a bootable USB from a live CD installer. But instead of burning a DVD, I'd like to make a bootable USB from the oss 11.3 DVD iso file. Note: I just want to make a bootable USB, not to install 11.3 on USB. ( There are many reasons to do that, e.g., USB is much easier to carry, and also reuse later for new versions. ) But it seems there is no instruction to do that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Bootable USB Ended With "invalid Or Corrupt Kernel Image"?

Jan 5, 2011

I've just purchased HP Mini 5103 with preinstaled SLED, but I want to replace with 11.3. But I have serious problem with booting from USB. Due to problem with BIOS bug/feature, 5103 is unabled to boot using USB with recursive partition (which is created from hybrid openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso either with ImageWriter of dd). When I create bootable USB with syslinux and copying of iso to existing partition, I ended with error "failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drive" (I have tried also both initrdud files, older one failed with "failed to detect USB", newer with "failed to detect CD"). I have also tried to install from full openSUSE-11.3-DVD-i586.iso which I have copied to USB using Unetbootin, but with this bootable USB I ended with "invalid or corrupt kernel image".

Red Hat / Fedora :: Creating A Bootable Custom Image?

Apr 1, 2010

I have installed Centos 5.4 and then on top of that i have been installing many softwares over the time ( like pbx system , web console , billing etc.) and now it has come to a quite stable stage. the problem is i have to move this installation to another machine with different config etc. even have to install it on multiple systems. the idea is to create a bootable linux iso of the current machine with all the softwares so i can simply put it in a different machine and make it install and run without much fuss. is creating a linux appliance the only solution ? or is there any way to backup the current machine in an iso format and then install it on another machine? also i would like to make this completely hardware independent.

General :: Bootable Kernel Image Creation

Apr 20, 2010

the things i've tried:

1. Created an asm bootloader code that calls a c function which just prints a hello message.
2. Compiled both and linked them using LD command using a .ld file available.

Steps followed from http://wiki.osdev.org/Bare_bones.I get a kernel.bin file which is of ELF format. I've set up a tftp server using tftpd32 tool and created the necessary pxelinux.cfg files.

Now how do i create a bootable kernel image out of the elf file. The steps given in the above website to create an image doesn't help.

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Bootable System Image With ClamAV Or Similar Installed?

Jul 28, 2011

All of my PCs are set up to either run Ubuntu directly, or are dual boot Ubuntu and some variant of Windows. One of the things I like about this is that in the rare instances that I get a virus I can simply boot into Ubuntu and run ClamAV to remove the virus from there.

I have a friend who recently picked up a nasty virus and we are having a hard time getting his machine to boot at all without all sort of strange behaviors. Under that scenario I can't trust Wubi to work correctly. Soo....

Is it possible for me to create a bootable CD, DVD or USB drive from my machine? I'd like to use my machine because I can update the virus definitions before I create the image and then use that to clean his machine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating A Bootable USB Image Based On A Running System (NOT LiveCD)

Sep 2, 2010

I have a system built and running in exactly the basic configuration I want, with my recompiled kernel, extra packages, special drivers, everything works, life is good. What I want to do is take this exact setup and create an image I can copy onto a bootable USB stick. Is there a way to essentially take the contents of my hard drive and copy that onto a USB stick and then boot directly from that? The use case behind this is that I am building an embedded system of which I may have hundreds of boxes with identical hardware and software configurations. Instead of hard drives, I am going to use USB sticks for cost efficiency and maintenance. My idea is that when it's time to upgrade, I could just image a hundred new sticks and go out and swap them.

My issue is that a standard LiveCD install gets me maybe 25% of the way to a finished system. I need to recompile the kernel for realtime support with my CPU, add some fidgety drivers for some specific hardware, and install a whole bunch of additional packages. I suppose I could create a makefile(s) to replicate all the manual steps of the buildout but that seems like a lot of unnecessary complexity IF I can just image that running system as it is.

CentOS 5 :: Build A Bootable System Image On An Attached Hard Disk On A Running Machine?

Feb 27, 2011

I would like to build a bootable system image on an attached hard disk on a running CentOS machine.The hard disk would be moved to a headless server, where only SSH access would be available. It seems that all the documented install methods assume that the installation runs on the taget machine. In this case, I would like to create a bootable system image of CentOS on a running host system. The new install mage would generally have a newer version of CentOS than the running host system where the image is created. Also, I would prefer
to do a text-based install.

The reason for all this is that I have network access to several remote machines. I can ask disks to be moved between machines, but I have no physical access. In order to do software testing, I would like to have several system disks with different installed CentOS versions. It would be easer if I could build the system disks on one single machine. The hardware an all machines is very nearly identical.
