It's a sort of continuation of this post.

There's this problem of having to edit ISOs, but there's nothing I've found that actually works on bootable >2GB ISOs without breaking the boot code or something without any sort of limit (and I can't know if it breakes bootable ISOs).

As icing on the cake, some program said to be both freeware and recommended for HBCD ISO editing didn't do nothing, it was trial (because it's not the linux version - manual didn't specify) and it broke the boot code (IsoMaster).
Do you know any kind of freeware programs that actually do their stuff correctly? Even trials with no limitations are welcome here.

I've still not given up on this sort of "project", because that HBCD thing is not the only ISO I need to edit.

ImgBurn is capable of building bootable ISOs, although you may need to change some of the advanced options depending on the boot code. (For example, some Windows CDs require you to remove the ";1" version number.) It can copy the boot code from an existing CD.

Daemon Tools Lite can mount ISO files as virtual CD drives, which is what ImgBurn will need in order to copy the boot code (and files?) from an ISO.

I already have ImgBurn as a primary way to build ISOs for VMs, so that's done.

But, does VirtualCloneDrive work too for this kind of stuff? I've had problems with Bootable_NoEmulation.img as boot code until very recently, so I can't know (yet) if it does work with that program too.

EDIT: the boot code runs into a checksum error. The message says:

ISOLINUX 4.06 2012-10-23 ETCDisolinux: Image checksum error, sorry...

Boot failed: press a key to retry...


EDIT 2: VPC did a bluescreen on me.

For isolinux, you must point the boot information to the isolinux.bin file that is going to be included in the new ISO (rather than extracting the boot code from the old ISO). You must also check the "patch boot information table" box. The rest of the settings will probably be okay with defaults.

Nope, the defaults with those settings don't work. Also note I'm not using vanilla HBCD, but Proteus' version, which both uses SYSLINUX and Grub4Dos.

Have you tried relaxing the filename restrictions for ISO9660 and Joliet?

Relaxed the restrictions, same boot settings as the last time, same "00,00" result. It's starting to get annoying - mostly because if there was a way to edit the ISO directly there shouldn't have been problems like this.

You could try using mkisofs instead of ImgBurn. It might be a bit of a pain getting it to work in Windows, though.

Seems strange that ImgBurn isn't working, though; it should support this. What are your exact settings?

"ISO9660 + UDF"

Try adding Joliet. (And possibly removing UDF.)

It gives the same 00,00 result.

Ouch... that's going to be painful (considering I never actually got Cygwin (and the installer some times) working on this machine for some stupid reason ).

I'll see if my experience with Cygwin improves...
