Regarding Creation of Bootable ISO of hard disk image having multiple partitions..
If this is not the right place, please suggest me in the right direction...
I created dd image of my hard disk which consists of two partitions and it should be converted to bootable ISO so that, I can be able to boot Microsoft Virtual PC. For creating bootable ISO, I used the following in Linux OS:
mkisofs -b xy.img -hard-disk-boot -c boot.catalog -o xy_img.iso xy.img
But the command is not creating the bootable ISO image...It displays the error msg that the image contains multiple partitions.
As the man page of mkisofs says:
The hard disk image must begin with a master boot record that contains a single partition.
I tried in the following way
mkisofs -b BootWinXp.img -c boot.catalog -j -o xy_img.iso xy.img
I can boot in VMware/Virtaul PC as BootWinXp.img (It is created by using "create a MS-DOS Startup Disk" in WinXP ie, Format dialog) boot image as we are booting thru floppy...but I'm unable to boot my hard disk ie, xy.img is not at all calling.
I ported the mkisofs into windows....Hence, I didn't use the RockRidge extensions.
I wish to boot with this iso image as we are booting the system...Please suggest me for the creation of bootable iso of hard disk image having multiple partitions...
