Creating a multi-boot DVD that is greater than 4GB
Posted on 2008-10-24
I'm in the process of creating a multi-boot DVD using magicISO. I want to fill up a DVD+R DL disk with software and OS installations (unattended setups). The problem I'm running into is when my iso image size gets above 4GB, all of the Windows related install CDs fail to boot from the DVD. Does anybody have an idea why this is so? Has anybody created a multi-boot DL DVD (over 4GB) with success?
If I keep the size to less than 4GB, everything works fine.
Greater than 4GB, XP,Vista, and Bartpe CD don't boot.
Here's what I'm wanting to boot:
1) Windows XP SP3 install
2) Windows Vista SP1 install
3) BartPE Live CD
4) PC Doctor 6.0
5) Custom Build Ubuntu 8.04 Live CD
...And other things like MS Office,Adobe Acrobat, Novell Client, and general software utilities.
Total size of my needed DVD is about 7.5GB.
