How to create bootable ISO from files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've got a linux distribution (in ISO file) which I need to unpack (using 7-zip for example), changing some files and building a bootable ISO from those files again. I've tried multiple approaches

    e.g. this "https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/New-ISOFile-function-a8deeffd/view/Discussions#content"

    I was able to create the ISO but it won't boot up. Please help me out. Thanks

  • Hi Adam,

    PowerISO or Alcohol120% should allow you make bootable ISO.

  • I think to create a bootable image of an Linux OS you need to use Linux tools (e.g., like the 'dd' command).

  • This is not a scripting issue and belongs in a Linux forum.

  • it's not linux related, I just happened to build ISO with linux in it. For example http://serverfault.com/questions/715260/building-bootable-iso-using-mksisofs (my post) uses windows app.

  • Sorry I should've stated that before but I need it in command line / powershell (so I can script it), thanks

    You must use Linux tools too create a bootable Linux image.  Linux images are not in Windows format.  If you search you will find many free tools for generating a Linux bootable image.

  • I searched and I found for Example WinIso which doesn't support command line. Have you find anything that can help me with that? Thanks a lot

  • Not a scripting question.  I recommend posting on a Linux forum.
