@ billon: Thanks ... and updated ;)

@ billion, you can update it by clicking "Edit".

In addition, it's no longer stealth.
Now writes to HKLM, HKCU/Software/Cygwin

Thanks for that!
Your help is much appreciated.

@ Beeber

For Windows XP ISO Images, use CDimage. It has the boot image required for booting. You can also download just the BootImage to use with other software, but Folder2Iso does not provide this option.


Or you can download my version.. it's similar to MSFN but has been pre-configured for making Windows XP ISO:

1. Start with "MakeISO.exe".
2. Specify the root dir of your CD (the ISO Folder).
3. Specify the path and filename (where to save the ISO).
4. Click "Creation" on left > Click "Start Image Creation".

Ah, yes...autorun. Your answer reminds me of how much I still need to learn. Thanks.
I compiled Mini XP to run on a HDD.

@ Beeber

It depends on what kind of ISO.

Usually, the ISO should be bootable by itself without any further modifications if it was meant to be bootable.

But you can add a text file labeled "Autorun.ini", which will make it automatically boot up and load a specific file.

open=Setup.exe -auto
label="Acrobat X Pro"

You can search on Google to learn more about "Autorun.ini".

But what kind of ISO are you trying to create?

@Magibon...I had my boot image & cat clearly marked in a folder in the compilation, but the outcome wasn't bootable. How did you let the program know you wanted a bootable .iso?

usually, i make a portable version of UltraISO for creating ISOs.
But after this recent clean install of Windows 7 and spending 2 days testing out Custom Themes, i all "Softwared" out.

and decided to try this instead.

worked perfectly: the iso booted right up, installed perfectly as if created with UltraISO :)

Great addition, thanks !


oraclepass 2011-04-15 07:42 what does this mean?

I tried an earlier version of this and I liked it. I like the addition of the abort command. It's nice for quick run ISOs.
