OSCDIMG error

9 posts in this topic

Ok, finally got my Vista AIO completed. Then I used vlite to intergrate service packs and drivers to each image within the wim. So my finally x86 n x64 AIO is just over 4GB. However, oscdimg willl not create the iso due to install.wim having a file size larger than 4GB. Can anyone help me resolve this issue? I will remove Vista starter and N versions from the wim if I need too. I just don't know how to do that without starting over.

its due to joliet file size limit

joliet file s/m allows only single file size to 2GB

so ,change the OSCDIMG switch to -u1 (to build UDF bridge fs) or -u2 instead of -n or -j1

Thank you for the information! Just to verify:

this

oscdimg -o -n -bC:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Distribution\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Distribution C:\VLITE_AIO.iso -m

should be

oscdimg -o -u1 -bC:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Distribution\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Distribution C:\VLITE_AIO.iso -m

Lastly, I'm not familar with UDF. So what is the difference between -u1 and -u2? Thank you!

FYI... -u -u1 or -u2 give the same error that install.wim is over 4GB.

I get

OSCDIMG 2.45 CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility

-n

ERROR: File larger than 4GB: "\SOURCES\INSTALL.WIM"

-u1

ERROR: File larger than 4GB: "\sources\install.wim"

-u2

ERROR: File larger than 4GB: "\sources\install.wim"

Does a newer oscdimg version exist?

Another approach is mkisofs.

Big files greater 4 GB can be included to a bootable media.

Maybe that's a solution. Ask if you like to try this and need help.

I will look into mkisofs and let you know if I have any questions. Thank you for the tip.

if you need to use ISO image, just split the install.win using the command:

imagex.exe /split c:\dvd_build\sources\install.wim c:\dvd_build\sources\install.swm 2000

then remove the file c:\dvd_build\sources\install.wim

Done :)
