mkisofs: Error - boot image './isolinux/isolinux.bin' has not an allowable size.
 
Hi there
I took the first CD of RHEL 4 copied it the local directory and added my kickstart file to the root dir. Now I want to burn the CD again, this is what I do and this is what I get:
$ mkisofs -r -o rhel.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat ./
INFO: UTF-8 character encoding detected by locale settings.
Assuming UTF-8 encoded filenames on source filesystem,
use -input-charset to override.
Unknown file type (unallocated) ./.. - ignoring and continuing.
Using RELEA000.HTM;1 for /RELEASE-NOTES-pt_BR.html (RELEASE-NOTES-U1-pt_BR.html)
...
Size of boot image is 20 sectors -> mkisofs: Error - boot image './isolinux/isolinux.bin' has not an allowable size.


Can anyone help?

Hi, This worked to me too.

If the boot image is not an image of a floppy, you need to add one of the options: -hard-disk-boot or -no-emul-boot.
