Recreating the bootable ISO from the modified iso for opensuse


Can anyone please tell me what is the command to create the bootable ISO from the existing bootable ISO that i have modified. I have tried this command

mkisofs -o destination -b boot/x86_64/loader/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -c boot/x86_64/loader/isolinux.cfg source_path

But whatever the ISO is getting created from this command, when i am trying to create a virtual machine using this ISO its not booting the ISO .

and showing the message on the console
Unknown keyword in the configuration file
No Default and UI configuration directive found!

Can anyone suggest me what should i do so that i will work fine??

Thanks in advance..

The command is wrong in two places I can see. At the beginning where you have the word 'destination', you need to put whatever you want to name the created iso file and it should have an iso extension. Example: Opensuse.iso/

At the end of the command your have source path. You need to change that to the path to whichever directory you used to modify the files. So if you created a file in your /home/user directory named iso, you would change to the /home/user directory and put: iso where you now have the word source.

If you have done the above and just put 'destination' and 'source' in the command for some reason, then post back.
