Yzöwl Posted January 9, 2005 Share Posted January 9, 2005 (edited) When creating your unattended CD, CDIMAGE is used by nearly all of us.I know there is a GUI version of CDIMAGE, but most of us would still prefer something a bit easier to work with.Recently I saw a post request, by MCT, he was trying to use a right click context menu command which just created the ISO. A simple idea, and very handy for most of us!In my last posting, on the fore-mentioned thread, I had found a method of achieving the original goal.I've since tweaked it a bit, to allow for spaces in the folder name, and give it a simple installation method.InstructionsDownload the whichever of the two attached zip files you require, unzip it, right click on *.inf and choose Install. You can now delete the extracted files if you wish, as you will no longer need them.To use it, right click on the folder containing the files with which you wish to create an ISO and select eitherfrom MakeISO.zipBuild Bootable ISOBuild Data ISOor from BootISO.zipMakeBootISOThe ISO will be created in the parent directory of the folder you selected.If you have an earlier version of one of the many insarnations of these files, you will be better off uninstalling it from add /remove programs first.Beware some versions may not unistall correctly, due to bugs /errors and some may require a reboot or manual directory deletions too.[EDIT]If you are not running Win2k or higher, or if you intend creating a bootable CD for any OS other than XP some of the files provided may require editing /changing[/EDIT][EDIT2]MakeISO gives you options for both Data CDs and Bootable CDs (the type we create for unattended installs)Thanks to the 8936 people who downloaded the last version of DoISO, you can download the newest version MakeISO here.Whereas BootISO is for Bootable CDs (the type we create for unattended installs)[/EDIT2] Edited March 1, 2006 by Yzöwl Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
