I'm trying to create a bootable MS-DOS iso, using as the bootcode a Windows 98 Startup Floppy Disk. I need to add add files that exceed a normal 700MB disc, so it must be an iso/img file. Now, due to the fact that a floppy is mostly 1.44MB or 2.88MB, I know that I must add the floppy image as the iso's boot code, to be run in emulation mode.

But for the life of me, I cannot find any tool that will do this. WinImage works only on floppy Images, UltraISO injects extracted boot files but does not accept full floppy images.

 

What is a good appplication that does this? I got the floppy image from here http://www.allbootdi...ownload/98.html

 

Thank you

It's been a long time since I've done this but I am sure I used UltraISO for the injection.  I had to setup a boot disk for IDE CDROM support to launch DOS so that I could pull an old Symantec Ghost for DOS off the ISO / CDROM portion of the ISO.  We used to use this for images on VMWare and the old Windows Virtual Server.  I don't believe I have any of the old ISO's around any more.  I switched to WinPE and Ghost32/64.

 

Could it be just as simple as the extension you are choosing for the floppy image?  Rename it to .img????

You posted in a USB forum. Where does a USB fit in with this? :dubbio:

Boot from USB / Boot anywhere?  I was thinking of highlighted part. If I made a mistake, I ask respectfully to move the thread to where it belongs, thanks.

No problem, just wondered if it would be easier to do if you just booted from a USB drive (if possible) instead of making an ISO.

Well, *any* CD or .iso making tool will do that.

MKISOFS will do but if you are scared by the command line  :w00t: the good IMGBURN will do nicely.

You can use this tool and create a multi-Iso (.img) CD or DVD: http://reboot.pro/fi...543-mkisofsgui/
This is a Mkisofs GUI made by erwan.l: http://reboot.pro/to...351-mkisofsgui/

Only thing you need to do es create your own menu.lst for launching each: *.img, *.iso, *.gz images form the created Multi-Iso burned to a disc.
 
My menu.lst

Spoiler

 

You may set any boot sector you want, here I am using grubfordos as boot sector.

 

It is perfectly possible to do it in a manual way as I used to do long time ago, but using this tool you do not need to remember the long command line required to make mkisofs do what you want, I love this little GUI.
