  1. Are your setupldr.bin and NTLDR from same version of windows ?
  2. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...ndpost&p=217410
  3. Do you use Unicode for folder names or the folder with ISO contains spaces in name?
  4. I'll try to clear the confusion here... My first impression was that htc didn't even click at the link and he already started to ask the questions that aren't OK. There is no app on the net that have all the options described on a site or anywhere else. You must download it and try. I think this isn't a problem with freeware. The question: First I was thinking that he DID try some of the previous versions, but he wasn't sutisfied. Why he didn't send a request then? And why would we need all the mkisofs options that includes AudioCD/VideoCD etc ? That told me that this isn't a real user, that he don't need The_GUI and that he is here just to make comparations between cdimage gui and The_GUI. Asking about 'hide' options... Everybody interested could see the screenshots and he could see that most used 'hide' options are implemented. But he is stil asking for 'hide' options... Now, don't get me wrong, I don't have hard feelings, but next time first take a look (at least take a look at the site where you are downloading from) and then ask questions. And one more thing, I don't have plans to write any text file about what is included and what isn't. There I must write that 'sorting' option is also included, and somebody will ask what is sorting and how it's done etc... That would take more time than writing a whole app. If you know how to deal with mkisofs - then you'll find this frontend useful, if you don't - you need to read mkisofs manual first. The difference between using plain mkisofs and using The_GUI is about distributing you settings to other people, specialy if you have sorting lists, and uppercasing/lowercasing lists. With The_GUI it will take just a minute for having files from other people modified to fit your needs. No hard feelings please, One more thing - there isn't any kind of support for betas on the net. Download, try, report or move it to the Trash.
  5. 1. make registry snapshots before and after instaling a program on normal Win. 2. Save the difference in a .reg file 3. Put both program and .reg file on your CD 4. on other system, apply registry, start the program This was a very generalized description, but if the registry keys contains some paths to files, or your app is installed in more than one folder (e.g. Program Files + My Documents/ Application Data) - the whole thing gets more complicated...
  6. Just take a look at this screenshot, left side of the form, HIDE panel: http://stud3.tuwien.ac.at/~e0227529/beta/shoots/makeiso.jpg
  7. Bcdw 2.0a1 And Cdrtools-2.01-bootcd.ru-w32, temp mirror until site comes back. I have mirrored this two files until Alex's site come back online. http://stud3.tuwien.ac.at/~e0227529/mirror/ Please don't post this link on other forums or sites without my permission.
  8. - Most of the options not included or marked as irrelevant are platform specific or usable just for using from command line (logging, debugging etc.) - There is a lot of options for compatibility with very old systems - most aren't included. - Because the accent is on making bootable CDs for x86 systems - all the relevant options for Windows (Joliet) and Linux (RockRidge) are included. - Because this is a Win32 application (The_GUI and mkisofs MinGW32 version) - just options reachable from Windows platform are included, some Linux options aren't included because you can't reach them from Windows platform. - no Mac HFS options are included (who makes Mac bootable CDs on Win32 platform?) - Because the accent is on making bootable CDs, all the AudioCD, VideoCD, DVD-Video aren't included - no multisession options, multisession can make a mess on bootable CDs if you try to burn updated file (deleting older version from CD tree) - duplicates-once and -force-uppercase are mkisofs MinGW32 specific options, they can't be found in original mkisofs. Those options are INCLUDED - from the functions that aren't included, some of them can be included in some new version of The_GUI if there is a particular needs, but from the feedback from the users - seems that all the relevant options are already included - I wonn't include a option just because it is Win32 'compatible' if no user needs it Screenshots are here: http://stud3.tuwien.ac.at/~e0227529/beta/shoots/ regards bobby100

  11. @all 1. I'm well introduced with the possibilities of cdimage. 2. cdimage supports less filesystems options than mkisofs like: - standard RockRidge filesystem extension proposed by Linux community, accepted by ISO standards - Mac HFS CD filesystem - UDF - Audio - VideoCD - hidding files like boot sector, boot catalogue, any other file (I think the last one isn't quite useful) - etc... 3. only point where cdimage was better was storage optimization through linking multiple instances of same file located in different folders. Mkisofs for Linux had haved this before cdimage, mkisofs have support for this one too in recent versions for Win32 4. cdimage is leaked propietary piece of software, mkisofs is GPL and free 5. All Linux CD/DVD burning software is just a frontend for cdrtools (mkisofs is a part of cdrtools) 6. I'm not a writer of mkisofs 7. I'm just making a frontend with accent on making bootable CDs 8. My frontend have unique features that neither the Linux frontends have, neither cdimage e.g. making lists for files burning order on CD (this can speed up the booting if you know the order in which files are loaded) 9. Stop blaming me, I'm not the one who spams this forum with my software (call it piece of crap if you want). Somebody else have put the link to previous version on this forum and I saw that the link had a lot of visitors. I have decided to keep the people from this forum informed about. If you don't want me here - just say, I don't have a problem with that.
  12. With mkisofs (also with The_GUI) you can do more advanced things. ISO9660/Joliet isn't the only filesystem on the world (try to make RockRidge filesystem with Nero). Also, try to combine Knoppix and WinPE with Nero, Knoppix wont boot because of inproper filesystem . Try to optimize the loading of your WinPE with Nero, with The_GUI you can specify in which order the files would be recorded to CD etc, etc... Nero is "just" user friendly ("just" because I use it for all normal tasks), but with The_GUI/mkisofs you can do much more, you have acces to all the parameters of your ISO (yes, The_GUI will always first make the ISO file so you can test it in VMWare or other VMs). Want to have more Windows installations on one CD (x-in-1)? Linking the duplicated files from The_GUI will do the job, can Nero do that ? etc...etc...
  13. @Nois3 My first post, first line: "Hi, new beta of The_GUI is released. The_GUI is a frontend for mkisofs, cdrecord, readcd, dd, bbie with addition of other stuff not found in other frontends."
  14. ok people, my last post here because it seems that nobody is interested: beta4 is online
