I am trying to create a custom LiveCD from an image bigger than the "normal" size of either a 1200, 1440, or a 2880 kB floppy, which is stated in man mkisofs , -b flag.
My custom image is which I normally use to dd to Compact Flash disks.
I noticed mkisofs with -no-emul-boot will not work when creating a LiveCD.
Any idea how to create a custom LiveCD with an image bigger than normal floppy images (not using grub)?
What I did:
mkdir test ; cp boot-big.fs test/
mkisofs -l -J -R -o cd.iso -c boot.catalog -no-emul-boot -b boot-big.fs test
Sorry for cross list emails. I wasnt sure whom to ask.
