Creating An ISO Image
To create an iso image of your installation, simply run
sudo remastersys distThis will create an iso image called customdist.iso in the /home/remastersys directory. The dist option makes that your personal folder (e.g. /home/ruchi) will not be included in the iso image. You might have to insert your Ubuntu installation CD during the process.
/home/remastersys/customdist.iso is ready to be burned or tested in a virtual machine.
Check the size and if it is larger than 700MB you will need to burn it to a dvd
After you’ve burnt the iso image onto a CD/DVD, you can run
sudo remastersys cleanto remove all temporary file created during the iso generation as well as the /home/remastersys directory.
