However, when I also add the Server 2008 R2 to the image, setup fails during the WindowsPE pass with one of two errors:
"A requird CD/DVD drive driver is missing ..." "Windows cannot open the required file E:\Soures\install.wim. ... Error code: 0x8007000D" (I only got this lately after changing my sort order a bit)
My mkisofs settings are as follows (I also tried -udf):
-iso-level 3 -r -allow-multidot -no-iso-translate -relaxed-filenames -allow-leading-dots -N -l -d -D -joliet-long -graft-points -no-emul-boot -b loader.bin -sort iso.sort
My sort file is as follows (probably not self-explanatory, but I'll add it just to be sure):
z:/deploy/root.cdsh/boot.catalog 10000 z:/deploy/root.cdsh/loader.bin 9990 z:/deploy/root.cdsh/cdsh 9980 z:/deploy/root.win5x/win51* 9970 z:/deploy/root.win5x/win52* 9970 z:/deploy/root.win5x/*.htm 9970 z:/deploy/root.win5x/wxp? 9960 z:/deploy/root.win5x/wxp? 9960 z:/deploy/root.win5x/w03? 9960 z:/deploy/root.win5x/*.xml 9950 z:/deploy/root.win5x/bootfont.bin 8000 z:/deploy/root.win5x/wxpcorp??sp3/I386/* 1100 z:/deploy/root.win61/boot 9960 z:/deploy/root.win61/bootmgr 9960 z:/deploy/root.win61/*.xml 9950 z:/deploy/root.win61/setup.exe 9950 z:/deploy/root.win61/autorun.inf 9950 z:/deploy/root.win61/sources/* 9950 z:/deploy/root.win61/sources/setup.exe 9955 z:/deploy/root.win61/sources/boot.wim 9955 z:/deploy/root.win61/sources/install.wim 9000 z:/deploy/root.win61/sources/W*.xml 9951 z:/deploy/root.apps/apps -8000
(cdsh is my boot-loader, win5x and win61 the XP and 7/Server 2008 R2 roots; I basically merge all the different OS root directories into my multi-boot iso.)
There is no immediate problem creating the iso file with the listed settings, despite the fact that install.wim now is larger than 4gb.
All postings regarding iso-creation did not help me - I can create the iso.
All postings regarding search order I tried to take into account - the files are sorted properly as far as I can see.
My understanding from other threads is that if the iso/sorting problems are solved, really large install.wim files should be usable. So where did I make a mistake?
