General :: Use Mkisofs To Rebuild Iso Image?
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
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
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:
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)

OpenSUSE Install :: Make A Bootable DVD Version USB?
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 :: Make A Bootable USB Stick From A WINDOWS ISO?
The thread's title is very eloquent:I have a Windows 7 ISO image and I would like to "burn" it on a bootable USB pen in order to install it on a netbook.Obviously I am on openSUSE, and all I read so far was instructions to burn an opensuse or any linux distros (the "dd" tales)

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

Tried burning to BD-R disk with 11.5 Gb file. I have burned blu ray disks before with my machine but used nero, I would prefer to use k3b as should do this.

Fedora :: How To Create Bootable DOS CD Iso Image Under F8 Or F10?
I have downloaded a bootable DOS iso CD image that I have burnt to CD and can boot from.I need to add more disk checking utilities to the CD iso image.The DOS disk checking utilities are designed to be run from a floppy disk, but my laptop does not have a floppy drive, so CD-ROM is an alternative, if I can remaster the existing iso image file?Can I mount the DOS iso file and then add other programs to it, and then remaster the updated iso, and make a new CD-ROM to boot from with the added tools?

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