Create a Windows bootable CD/DVD with mkisofs
Authored by: plecostomus on Sep 12, '09 10:38:23PM

On a PC the command should be:

mkisofs -b boot.img -no-emul-boot -boot-load-seg 1984 -boot-load-size 4 -iso-level 2 -J -joliet-long -l -D -relaxed-filenames -N -V XPSP3 -v -o "c:\WinXP.iso" c:\xpsp3\


This assumes the following:
You have the boot.img (rename from Microsoft Corporation.img) in the same directory as your Windows CD directory you'll be using to create the ISO.

The name of this directory is c:\xpsp3

The output ISO file will be located at c:\winxp.iso

You can use a free utility called ISO Recorder by Alex Feinman (Please donate) to burn it to your CD. Install it and afterwards you right click on the ISO file and click "Copy Image To CD".

Good Luck.
