Make as UDF as original file system.

cdimage -n -m -u2 -bX:\MyVistaDVD\boot\etfsboot.com X:\MyVistaDVD\ X:\Vistax86.iso

Download CDImage

X:\MyVistaDVD => path of source
X:\Vistax86.iso => Output bootable Image

Use the command-line tool to make Vista bootable.

Hi guys, I am new here, but already seems as though there is really good info and you all seem really sharp. I, on the other hand am not. I have read all through this thread and can't figure it out. It seems as though the command line that Neo uses will not work. Or am I reading that wrong, Shiraz? And at the same, Bassix is giving a command line as well and that seems to work....or?? So which is it? I really need help making a BOOTABLE! I capped that because I can make iso images all day, but none will boot. I am so frustrated and about to give up. Please guys, in straight english what are the steps to make a bootable Vista DVD??

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated and I will be eternally greatful.

Please please please please...........................HELP!

Dudeman

This is what I do with absolutely any bootable cd/dvd.

Extract the boot sector by using bbie.exe (Bart's PE site) from either an iso image or bootable cd/dvd. This is usually a 2048 byte file & generally saved as image1.bin.

Extract an iso or copy a cd/dvd to a folder retaining directory structure. Make any additions / subtractions to this directory as per your needs.

This is the lone command line in my vista_full.bat batch file. Saves me the trouble of remembering & typing the command repeatedly. No chance error either

start cdimage.exe -lvista_full -h -j1 -m -o -b\vista_full\image1.bin \vista_full \vista_full.iso

where cdimage.exe is in the root, vista_full is the directory containing all the files to go on the cd/dvd + image1.bin, which is my cdrom boot loader. Vista_full.iso is created in the root of the partition.

Hope this helps.

Gives me an optimized iso image that i burn to the cd/dvd rw using smallcdwriter.exe.
