Hello smh,
When I load the said iso file into PowerIso, the option to add boot in formation
is greyed out, so I assume that the iso already has boot information , because
it has a boot folder, but then I am not sure if boot info is in that folder,
as I don't know what boot info is required.

The iso is a windows app/program which I want to install on a free partition,
and is about 2.3Gb in size. It has a boot folder included in the iso plus
others when I view it in PowerIso.


(What Windows are you using?)

The greyed out option to add boot info could mean that PowerIso
recognized the .iso is a Windows program and thus not making it
bootable. Remember that when you boot, there is no Windows OS and
Windows program will not run.

The 'boot' folder may simply have images, like *.img, and programs to
make bootable floppys, like makedisk.exe, with the images. Doubt that
the 'boot' folder have a file like 'BootCatalog.cat'. What's the file
name of the .iso? Maybe I can get some clue from it what the .iso is all
about? What's the name of the Windows program in the .iso?

Does the free partition have a drive letter assigned? Can't you specify
the drive (partition) for the install location?

Mike Richter's Unadulterated White Lie

Subject: 4x CDRW's in 12x Writer?

I have tested non-HighSpeed erasables in my 12x HighSpeed
and 8x non-HighSpeed Plextors and find substantially higher
error rates at 4x in the HighSpeed drives.
======================

The above is an unadulterated white LIE. There was NO way Mike Richter
could have found "error rates". First, there was NO error rate
measuring software supporting Plextors. Second, even if there was
such a software, it could not have found error rates -- because
the above Plextors do NOT report C1 errors.

Wow! What a slimy friggin SOB!

Default Making a bootable dvd: Update

Hello smh,
Well, I finally managed to boot from the said dvd yesterday.
I was swapping dvds in and out of the drive and left one in while I rebooted
my OS.
As it was booting I saw the message about pressing a key to boot from CD,
so I did and then there was another message saying it was going to boot from
cd/dvd, and voila! it did!

Thanks for your time.

Sorry for the confusion

Hello smh,
thanks for your replies, but when I use Nero to burn it or even burn
it as
an iso using PowerIso it doesn't boot.

From PowerISO:

Q: Can PowerISO make bootable CD?
A: Yes. PowerISO can add boot information to an non-bootable image
file
.

Those are called Boot Menu. Once you boot from CD, there is typically
another menu.

Thanks for your time.


You are welcome. Just glad that the dvd's you burned are not total
waste.

Mike Richter - the Slimiest Lying Friggin SOB (UDF)
================================================== =

The slimiest lying friggin SOB Mike Richter has been for YEARS
blaming the UDF -- to weasel out the bugs of DirectCD:

------------------------------------------
UDF is a fragile format
UDF is an unreliable format

the format is very fragile and unreliable
The format is bad - it loses data
The fault is not with the software but with the format

There is an inherent problem in UDF
Packet writing is the same as UDF.

I have used only DCD for packet writing,
have had no problems due to the software
- but too many due to the format itself

to bother with it any longer.
------------------------------------------

But then again:

Subject: UDF Has just bit me in the bum

I have used UDF for many years, but yesterday I had my first
corruption. I am now wondering whether to bother with UDF


First, your problem is not with UDF
