It’s quite annoying having to create Windows installation discs.
One thing I find is that every single time I do it – I keep having to check the internet, so here’s a note of the important bits.
- Extract the service pack
- Integrate the service pack with the copied installation disc
- Extract the boot image from the CD and copy it into the new O/S directory
- Create an iso with mkisofs
<code>mkisofs -b bootimage.bin -hide bootimage.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-seg 1984 -boot-load-size 4 -iso-level 2 -J -l -D -N -joliet-long -relaxed-filenames -V "NRMSVOL_EN" -o newCD.iso C:\OS_source\</code>
Creating the ISO works in both Windows (with a 32-bit version of mkisofs) and Linux.
