Generally when a distro wants to save space they turn to squash file system. You have to unsquash it and edit then re-squash it back.
I've unsquashed it then what to do if I want to install a program to that filesystem. For example, I need unetbootin which is not automatically installed by the system. Do I have to copy all of it's files to the specific folders of the squashfs-root (unsquashed filesystem.squashfs). I've tried it once to insert system-config-printer but failed. It's menu appears on the desktop (System-Administration-Printing) but nothing happen when I click on it. I've tried to run it from terminal, too, but failed again. (Forgot to save the failure report).

For example, the free software such as InfraRecorder, ImgBurn and mkisofs as well as Roxio Toast are able to create ISO 9660 filesystems that use multi-extent files to store files larger than 4 GB on appropriate media such as recordable DVDs.

As mentioned Centos 7 currently has a 7.7 GB iso file for download. The largest OS iso file I remember was over 11 GB.



With better software to create iso files you don't have a 4GB limit and so don't need luck or for that matter jerky responses from a "guru".
Thanks for the advice.
I'll try them and post here again if I get another problems
