Create a Windows bootable CD/DVD with mkisofs
Authored by: altotus on Apr 23, '08 06:35:22PM

One might note that mkisofs is not necessary at all. The hdiutil tool provided with Mac OS X already does all this (and a little more) -- it's essentially a superset of mkisofs.

Also, for Linux, mkhybrid would be the successor to mkisofs.

Not quite. There is some overlap in functionality, but there are many thing you can do with one you can't with the other. mkisofs has it's strength in creating CD and DVD images. hdiutil has it's in manipulating Mac OS X disk images.

mkhybrid is an old fork of mkisofs from before mkisofs supported hybrid images. mkisofs is actively maintained has since gained all of the capabilities of mkhybrid and more.
